DCSA Releases Revised Investigative Costs for Fiscal Year 2022/23
The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) released a new Federal Investigative Notice (FIN) for revised pricing on investigative products and services for Fiscal Year 2022, which starts October 1, 2021. Notably, pricing for background investigation products for Tiers 1 through 5 were reduced by three percent compared to previously published FY 2022 rates. A new product addition that aligns with the Trusted Workforce initiative offers non- DoD agencies continuous vetting services for an annual subscription fee. Here is a quick look at primary investigation costs:
|National Agency Check||$140||N/A|
|Tier 1 (non-sensitive low risk)||$180||N/A|
|Tier 2 (moderate risk public trust)||$420||$455|
|Tier 2R (reinvestigation)||$380||$410|
|Tier 3 (non-critical sensitive – Secret)||$420||N/A|
|Tier 3R (reinvestigation)||$380||N/A|
|Tier 4 (high risk public trust)||$4,095||$4,425|
|Tier 4R (reinvestigation)||$2,530||$2,730|
|Tier 5 (critical and special sensitive (TS and SCI)||$5,410||$5,845|
|Tier 5R (reinvestigation)||$2,965||$3,200|
Other investigative products are available on an as needed basis such as Expedited Screening Protocol to screen those individuals who have a foreign nexus or Reimbursable Suitability/Security Investigations that may require fieldwork and centralized checks. You can go to the FIN 21-02 directly to see all of the products available and cost for each. As an add on note, reinvestigations for Tier 3 and 5 have largely gone by the wayside now that continuous evaluation is in effect, the same will go for Tier 2 and 4 once the Trusted Workforce Program is implemented.
