BACKGROUND    INVESTIGATION The  BI,  conducted  by  the  DIS,  consists  of an  NAC  and  a  field  investigation  performed through  interviews  and  written  inquiries.  The standard   BI   consists   of   a   subject   interview; checks  of  the  subject’s  employment  and  credit history;  inquiries  of  local  agencies  in  areas where  the  subject  has  lived,  worked,  or  gone to   school;   and   interviews   of   employment references  and  developed  character  references. The  scope  of  a  BI  is  usually  a  period  of  5 years before the investigation or from the 18th birthday  to  the  time  of  the  investigation, whichever is shorter; however, at least the last 2   years   must   be   covered.   No   investigation may   extend   further   back   than   the   subject’s 16th   birthday.   The   following   documents   are required  to  process  a  BI: l  An  original  and  four  copies  of  the Request  for  Personnel  Security  Investigation, DD  1879 l   An   original   and   five   copies   of   the complete   Personnel   Security   Questionnaire (BI/SBI),  DD  398 l  An  original  Authority  for  Release  of Information  and  Records,  DD  2221 l  Two  Applicant  Fingerprint  Cards,  FD 258 Step-by-step i n s t r u c t i o n s    f o r    t he completion  of  these  documents  can  be  found in chapter 21 of the  Security   Manual. SPECIAL   BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION The  SBI,  conducted  by  the  DIS,  provides a  greater  depth  of  knowledge  than  a  BI. Elements   covered   in   an   SBI   include   the subject’s  education,  neighbors,  foreign  travel, foreign connections, and   organizational affiliations.  DIS  does  not  conduct  a  subject interview  as  part  of  an  SBI  except  to  resolve unfavorable   or   questionable   information.   An SBI  also  includes  an  NAC  of  the  subject’s spouse  or  cohabitant  and  any  other  members of  the  subject’s  immediate  family  18  years  of age  or  older  who  are  U.S.  citizens  other  than by  birth  or  who  are  not  U.S.  citizens.  The scope  of  an  SBI  is  15  years  before  the investigation  or  from  the  18th  birthday  to  the time  of  the  investigation,  whichever  is  the shorter   period;   however,   at   least   the   last   2 years  must  be  covered.  No  investigation  may extend   further   back   than   the   subject’s   16th birthday.   SBIs   are   conducted   only   when specifically   required   by   CNO   or   higher authority. The  same  forms  required  to  process  a  BI are  required  to  process  an  SBI.  In  addition, for  the  subject’s  spouse  and  for  each  member of  the  subject’s  immediate  family  who  is  a foreign national, immigrant   alien,   or naturalized  U.S.  citizen,  an  original  and  two copies  of  the  DD  398-2  must  be  completed through  item  8. PERIODIC    REINVESTIGATION A   PR   determines   a   subject’s   continued eligibility  for  access  to  classified  information by  revaluating  a  previous  valid  investigation of  the  person. PRs   are   conducted   every   5 years and should be initiated 4 years 6 months from   the   completion   date   of   the   last investigation.   PR   elements   include   an   NAC; a  subject  interview;  credit,  employment,  and local  agency  checks;  interviews  of  employers; and  character  references, INVESTIGATIVE   REQUIREMENTS FOR  A  PERSONNEL SECURITY   CLEARANCE The    investigative requirements  for  a personnel  security  clearance  apply  to  positions involved   with   Top   Secret, Secret,   or Confidential  materials  and  positions  in  the Personnel  Reliability  Program  (PRP). 8-2
