"What the contractor needs to know"
- Prior to entering a BOC Facility, non-Bureau personnel must complete a Special Sworn Status form BC-1759, be sworn-in and escorted by a BOC employee.
- A BOC employee must escort, at all times, any foreign national who has not been in the US for 2 consecutive years.
- All contractors must complete a pre-appointment check. General requirements include completing the following forms and submitting them to the Office of Security (OSY) 2 weeks prior to starting work: two (2) fingerprint cards (FD-258), Questionnaire for Non-Sensitive Positions (SF-85) or Special Agreements Check (SF-86C), Declaration of Federal Employment (OF-306) and Special Sworn Status (BC-1759). Note the following exceptions and particulars:
- If the contractor will be working less than 14 days then s/he fills out the BC-1759, is sworn-in and escorted by a BOC employee.
- If the contractor will be working more than 14 days but less than one year then s/he must submit (2) FD-258, (1) SF-86C, (1) OF-306 and the BC-1759. This clearance is referred to as a Special Agreements Check (SAC).
- If the contractor will be working one year or longer then s/he must submit (2) FD-258, (1) SF-85, (1) OF-306 and the BC-1759. This clearance is referred to as a National Agency Check with Inquiry (NACI).
- Fingerprints may be taken at any police station.
- It is the contractor's responsibility to return all forms to the BOC in the postage paid envelope provided. Failure to do so will result in the delay of your start date.
- The contractor will be notified by the COTR with the final status. S/he can then make arrangements (through the COTR) to schedule an appointment with the OSY to get a badge and be sworn-in.
- Renewals shall be submitted to security 30 days prior to expiration.
- It is the contractor's responsibility to know his/her expiration date and submit the paperwork in a timely manner.
- The contractor shall work through the COTR for any questions or problems regarding clearances or building access, and/or proximity cards.
- All contractors shall complete the Contractor Checklist for Exiting the Census Bureau prior to their last day on the program. This can be obtained from the COTR.
- If 24/7 access is required, the COTR needs to know the name(s) of the individual and how long it is required. Depending on the length a new badge may be required.
- All foreign nationals with less than 2 years of consecutive residency in the U.S. may not have 24/7 access.
