Government Positions

Working with the government presents a unique set of regulations to consider. People hired for federal government jobs need to submit to a federal employment background check, especially when considering those that deal with confidential information.

We help clients meet stringent US government working requirements to prove themselves as reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and character, and loyal to the United States.

Benefits of Government Employment Checks

Stay Compliant

We ensure that any organization we work with stays within compliance laws from local to state to federal. Our technology is world-class, customizable, mobile-enabled and compliant with the highest security standards, including FCRA, PCI DSS, SOC 2 Type II, and more. 



Social Media Screening

We use compliance-friendly social media screening. It’s a powerful method to ensure candidates have solid moral character beyond what they say about themselves on paper.

Flag Undesirable Candidates

We locate illegal activity, explicit material, violence, hate speech, and more with our technology. We quickly know if an applicant has negative behavior or an unlawful past.

Trusted Results

We verify candidates with multiple identifiers to ensure that we’re examining the correct person. Identity verification is useful to find insight without being invasive to people’s personal lives.


You don’t want HR wasting time digging through on hundreds of job applications. It’s a compliance nightmare and a waste of resources. It’s much faster and cost effective to have a background screening company do the work.

We are here to help government agencies reduce risk with trusted results.
