Public Trust Tier 1 - Charge Off

I’ve been selected as a contractor for DHS. This position required DHS Suitability.

I’ve a credit card charge off on my credit, will this Tier 1 check my credit history. I didn’t see any section on th SF85 which asked for credit checks.

Thank you.

First off, a Tier 1 is not a public trust investigation, hence the use of the SF-85 instead of the SF-85P. The only time credit checks are run on a Tier 1 is when the applicant self admits on the OF-306 form that they have student loan debts or owe federal taxes.

Thank you for the clarification.
