EMPLOYEE TESTIMONIAL

I started with NAVFAC as an engineering student trainee in July 2020, in the middle of a pandemic so things were a bit different than the normal office setting for a while but everyone was very friendly and helpful giving me insight on the ins and outs of NAVFAC and DoD as a whole. An average day wasn’t like what you would expect from an internship, I was not sitting in the shadows of someone simply observing, the work was hands on. They gave me my own projects to manage which helped me learn more effectively how to be in the role of a construction manager, which I am more than certain helped with me securing my permanent position in China Lake, CA as a construction manager only 5 months after graduating college. This position has opened a new door for me to really spread my wings and for that i would highly encourage students into looking to working with NAVFAC during the summer, it can truly be the start of amazing things.  ~ Alyssa C. (Former NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic Student Trainee 2020-2021)

SECURITY BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION (e-QIP)

 

 

Because most of the positions at NAVFAC MID-ATLANTIC require the ability to obtain and maintain a security clearance, all new hires must go through an adjudication process. The adjudication process is an examination of a sufficient period of a person’s life to make an affirmative determination the person is eligible for a security clearance.

SecurityClearanceProcess

 

Many NAVFAC MIDLANT employees are required to have a security clearance. A security clearance investigation is used to collect background information to determine whether you are reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and character, and loyal to the United States. The investigation process is lengthy and can be confusing but remember; the MIDLANT security office is always available to answer your questions.

 

The steps in the process are:

1. e-QIP. e-QIP is a software program used to collect the basic information to get the security clearance process started. In filling out the e-QIP, you will provide information on your family, residences, employment, foreign travel, and foreign contacts.

 

2. Security Office Review. Once you complete the e-QIP, the NAVFAC MIDLANT security personnel will review for accuracy and completeness.

 

3. Background Investigation. The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) takes the information in the e-QIP and conducts record searches at law enforcement offices, courts, creditors, and other record repositories to see if there is derogatory information about you.

 

4. In-person Interview. The DCSA investigator may conduct an in-person interview with you and your co-workers to verify the information you provided. During this interview, the investigator will go review your information to clarify entries.

 

5. DCSA Completes Investigation. Information from the various parts of the investigation are compiled and sent to the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudication Facility (DODCAF), which is the office responsible for determining clearance eligibility.

 

6. Clearance Award. The NAVFAC MIDLANT security office will notify you of favorable or unfavorable determination for a clearance.

 

7. Continuous Vetting. Once a clearance is awarded, there is continuous monitoring of changes to credit reports, criminal records, and public records. Changes do not mean a clearance will be automatically revoked but negative changes may result in a reinvestigation.
