Background Investigations

The FBI's Applicant Program manages background investigations on all persons who apply for positions with the Department of Energy, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Department of Justice, and the FBI. The program also oversees background checks for presidential appointees, White House staff candidates, and US Court candidates. Background investigations involve interviewing neighbors and coworkers of applicants and checking criminal and credit records.
