Cutting Corners on Background Checks
A March 3, 2009 article in the D.C. Examiner reported that three workers pleaded guilty to “cutting corners on security-sensitive background checks for the federal government.” They failed to perform interviews and fraudulently submitted documents for years and lied to government officials.
As a result, numerous background investigations will be reopened and numerous record checks will have to be redone that were assigned to the three guilty workers.
