What is an SAC from OPM?


#1

I requested my JPAS record because why the hell not. It has my investigation dates along with “SAC from OPM on [date].”

I have no incidents or anything on my record to my knowledge…does anyone know what this is?

A SAC (Special Agreement Check) is where an individual’s fingerprints are electronically submitted to OPM by an agency to run a criminal history check. It can be done as a stand-alone check for the purpose of continuous evaluation, a follow-up to a report of arrest, used for the issuance of a government credential or in most cases, is the precursor to the submission of a full background investigation.
