The Defense Information Systems Agency has announced plans to create a National Background Investigation Service by next year.
DISA made the announcement in an industry notice posted on FedBizOpps, the primary source for federal government contract opportunities.
“The US Government has a requirement to vet individuals as trustworthy. Once vetted, this need continues to ensure the individuals remain trustworthy for as long as they have an association with the Federal government,” the notice states, adding, “The objective of this effort is to acquire a working, end-to-end software prototype of the Federal background investigation workflow.”
The timeline is for initial operational capability by September 2018, and full operational capability by 2019.
