FALLS CHURCH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At a Senate hearing today, questions were raised as to whether USIS is under “criminal investigation.” USIS has never been informed that it is under criminal investigation. In January 2012, USIS received a subpoena for records from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Office of Inspector General (OIG). USIS complied with that subpoena and has cooperated fully with the government’s civil investigative efforts.
In the same Senate hearing, questions were raised as to whether USIS had conducted the initial background investigation, or a periodic reinvestigation, for the security clearance of Edward Snowden. USIS conducts thousands of background investigations annually for OPM and other government agencies. These investigations are confidential and USIS does not comment on them.
USIS is the largest commercial provider of background investigations to the federal government. It has more than 6,700 employees providing services in all 50 states and U.S. territories and overseas. USIS offers a variety of support, including background checks, investigative analytics and biometric services, as well as customized solutions that help government clients manage litigation support requirements, records management and automated information management services.
