Q: What is the benefit of including the FACIS® search in my background check package? Can’t I just do individual OIG and GSA searches?

A: The Level 3 FACIS® search includes over 800 sources from all 50 states, a feature not available with OIG and GSA searches. For new hires, the FACIS® search (even Level 1) is a good value if you plan on conducting the GSA and OIG searches. But for update reports for existing employees, conducting the minimally required OIG search may be a better value.
