Title and Form Number: VA Police Officer Pre-Employment Screening Checklist, VA Form 0120.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0524.

Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.

Abstract: Each VA medical center has authority to hire its own VA police officers. Prior to employment of a qualified applicant, each facility is required to conduct an FBI arrest record inquiry and to contact listed former employers for a determination of any adverse performance or suitability information. VA Form 0120 is completed by each VA facility human resources office and serves as the record of pre-employment screening to determine the qualifications and suitability of the applicant. The Office of Security and Law Enforcement reviews each completed form and authorizes the VA police badge set issuance only in those instances where screening documentation is satisfactorily accomplished. The form serves as a standard means of ensuring the completion of the pre-employment process.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on March 27, 2000 at page 16244.

Affected Public: State, Local or Tribal Government, and Business or other for-profit.
