The U.S. Government conducts criminal checks to establish that applicants or incumbents working for the Government under contract may have unescorted access to GSA-controlled facilities. GSA uses the Temporary Contractor Information Worksheet and the FBI Form FD-258 Fingerprint Card to conduct a FBI National Criminal Information Check (NCIC) for each temporary contractor (working on contract for six months or less and require physical access only) on GSA contracts for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-5) efforts to determine whether to grant unescorted access to GSA-controlled facilities. GSA will continue to make physical access determinations for temporary contractors due to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidance M-05-24 for Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 authorizes Federal departments and agencies to ensure that temporary contractors have limited/controlled access to facilities and information systems. GSA Directive CIO P 2181.1 Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 Personal Identity Verification and Credentialing (available at http://www.gsa.gov/hspd12) states that GSA temporary contractors must undergo a minimum of a FBI National Criminal Information Check (NCIC) to receive unescorted physical access. Temporary contractors' Social Security Number is needed to keep records accurate, because other people may have the same name and birth date. Executive Order 9397 Numbering System for Federal Accounts Relating to Individual Persons also allows Federal agencies to use this number to help identify individuals in agency records. GSA describes how information will be maintained in the Privacy Act system of record notice published in the Federal Register at 73 FR 35690 on June 24, 2008.
