Personnel Security Operations

Parker Tide excels in providing Personnel Security Services to our Federal Clients, including national security and suitability adjudication and HSPD-12 compliance, assisting agencies that need to process and badge their new and existing full-time employees and contractors on a timely basis. In many instances, background investigations are required to determine an individual’s assignment to or retention in positions with sensitive duties.

Parker Tide’s adjudicators are generally responsible for initiating the pre-screen adjudication case preparation, including scanning and attaching documents into e-QIP; initiating pre-screen adjudication checks using on-line databases; initiating e-QIP invitations to applicants; and post-investigation adjudication preparation by scanning completed investigations files into a Federal internal case management system for review and records retention. Our adjudication personnel also recommend adjudicative action and provide supporting documentation on completed personnel security investigations.

Our employees have successfully completed adjudicative training relative to determining suitability for Federal employment and have completed a certified course offered by the federal government or from an approved OPM certified trainer. They possess knowledge of laws, OPM guidelines, personnel security and suitability standards and other Federal agency investigation procedures. They are experienced with CFR 731, 732, and 315; as well as E.O 12968 and DCID 614 to analyze and adjudicate personnel security investigations and have knowledge of principles of position sensitivity and risk designation.

I appreciate Parker Tide’s support and hard work on behalf of OHC and the LR Program. I stand in awe of your expertise and work ethic. I know we rely heavily on you for some of our most challenging and technically complex assignments. Having worked in this profession for three decades, I consider myself fortunate when I can leave the office at the end of the day having learned something new. Your analyses of individual cases as well as broad trends in LR activity have always been insightful and have added greatly to my own knowledge of Federal sector. For this, I am truly grateful.
