Identify security risks through investigation and adjudication so that the PSAC staff are able to advise their customers of the proper course of action with regard to suitability and security when considering individuals for VA employment and contractors for access to VA facilities and information. Services include preliminary reviews, investigation in partnership with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and final security clearance and suitability determinations. The costs of services provided by the PSAC vary depending upon the scope of the investigations.
