NBIB and other members of the personnel security community conduct official business, communicate and work together in a secure and encrypted environment known as the NP2 security portal. The secure portal NP2 can be used for the exchange of uncontrolled unclassified information, including sensitive but unclassified information (SBU), such as information from the Data Protection Act and Personal Data (PII). Community members with access to the portal can send and receive emails, verify and download documents, and access information about NBIB products and services. In addition, the portal serves as a gateway to automated systems (e-QIP, PIPS and CVS). NP2 access is limited and only by invitation. The service change requirements for the upgrade/upgrade/case are only for ongoing investigations (closed requests cannot be updated or downgraded). Requests must be faxed (724-794-1033 or 724-794-1459) or e-mail (FISUPGRADEDOWNGRADE@OPM.GOV) to NBIB correction technicians by Agency header. Requests must contain the following information: Transmission offices may have multiple SNSs. Anyone authorized by the head of the deposit office can use the SON to obtain information on the case of a substantive review of NBIB, provided the caller can answer questions from the telephone call. The Security/Suitability Investigations Index (SII) data is not available for the SON.

Full-Field Background Investigation (FFI) is required for employees with high-risk positions. This study covers a period of seven years and includes checks of national agencies, as described in the ENAI, a personal specialized interview, employment, autonomy and unemployment coverage, training verification, stays, former employers and repressive controls. The Human Resources Management Board (OPM) requires individuals applying for admission to the federal government to investigate their suitability for employment. OPM found that different levels of analysis are appropriate based on position accountability. The Office of Personnel Security and Identity Card (PSIO) ensures that all persons appointed to positions in IS roles are subject to substantive investigations and a position within IS and the federal government, and whether their employment could, in any way, pose a threat to the institution.
