The Security and Investigations Center (SIC) operates as one of the business segments of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Franchise Fund, which is comprised of six self-supporting lines of business (Enterprise Centers) and an administrative office (Franchise Fund Oversight Office).  Under the authority of the Government Management Reform Act of 1994 and Public Law 109-114, VA Franchise Fund Enterprise Centers (ECs) are authorized to sell common administrative support services to the VA and other Government Agencies on a fee-for-service basis and operate entirely on revenues earned from customers.  The collections from customers for products or services provided constitute the SIC’s funding source.  ECs receive no federally appropriated funding. Activities conducted by the ECs are approved and reviewed by the Franchise Fund Board of Directors.  Board members are comprised of officials from the Office of Management; Office of Information and Technology; Office of Operations, Security, and Preparedness (OSP); and General Counsel, in addition to the Chief Financial Officers from the three VA Administrations.  Oversight is provided by The Office of Personnel Security and Identity Management.




Process and adjudicate the background investigations for all moderate risk, high risk public trust, and national security positions for federal employees within the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as all levels of investigation for contractors performing jobs and functions for the Department of Veterans Affairs.  When requested by other VA agencies, process and adjudicate low risk investigations for federal employees and perform adjudications for agencies that process and submitted requests directly to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) for investigation.
