What does obtaining DHS Suitability only entail?


#1

Curious to know how hard is it to get DHS suitability only? I had to complete SF85P


#2

Public trust isn't that difficult. The investigation is primarily a NAC (National Agency Check) unless there are red flags. I recently had a case where an individual submitted the SF-85 and included information not asked for, which prompted a deeper dive into their prior work experience. Answer the questions asked, and do so truthfully.

Just a correction, a public trust investigation (Tier 2 or 4) requires an SF85P, subject interview, and other checks. What you are referring to is a Tier 1 (previoulsy known as a NACI) for low risk positions.

That is correct (NACI). Thank you.
