USIS has been selected by the U.S. Social Security Administration to conduct thousands of pre-background investigations.
SSA, a new client for USIS’ investigations services division, anticipates the need for up to 22,000 background investigations for contract employees each year of the five-year contract.
Damon Hudson, USIS vice president of investigative services, commented on the deal, saying his company is pleased to have been selected to provide its services.
“USIS is gratified that the SSA has entrusted us to take care of their contractor workforce,” he said. “There is a great deal of pressure to staff temporary positions in the high season. USIS has the resources, experience, and proven track record to ease the burden associated with processing the extra applications and paperwork.”
In addition to performing background investigations on contract employees, USIS will be responsible for other functions under the SSA contract, including case scheduling, data entry, fingerprint services, and preparing a final report of findings to SSA.
USIS was also recently awarded a deal from the Army to facilitate computerized fingerprint records from Army Recruiting Commands to the FBI and back to the Army.
