The only persons authorized to see your personal information are Personnel Security, Suitability, and Investigations professionals who have been investigated at the appropriate level and who have a genuine and demonstrated need for access to the information.
Providing information that is as complete and accurate as possible will assure that your investigation is completed in an efficient and timely manner. If you are unable to answer a question with precision, provide approximate information, note that you have done so on the questionnaire. If you are interviewed in person, point out the approximated information on the questionnaire to the Investigator. Any negative information is evaluated regarding its recency, seriousness, relevance to the position and duties, and in light of, and in relationship to, all other information about you.

ID Card and Building Access
On August 27, 2004, the White House issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) which directed Federal agencies to create a process to verify the identity of each employee and contractor who is required to possess a Federal identity card.
Every employee requiring working in a Federal building is required to complete the PIV (Personal Identity Verification) form. Your supervisor (PIV Sponsor) is required to fill out a portion of the form out with information regarding your position. At that time the form is forwarded to your HR liaison (PIV Registar) who will complete the form with you after reviewing your two forms of identification. Once all of that has been completed the form will be sent to the State Office for review. Once your background investigation and/or fingerprints have been cleared you will be issued an ID card and access card to your building (if applicable).
