One year ago, the Obama administration issued an executive order that stood up the National Background Investigations Bureau. It was an answer to calls from Congress, oversight groups and members of the national security community to modernize the background investigations process, and an effort by the Obama administration to restore trust in the Office of Personnel Management after a massive data breach in 2015. One year in, NBIB has 8,000 employees, spread over 86 field offices and two operation centers. They’re working to reduce a backlog that has reached 700,000 and advance and improve their IT systems. However, NBIB is now facing another potential challenge. The Senate’s version of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act contains language that would move the background investigations process for Defense Department employees, from NBIB to DoD. OPM granted Government Matters access to the NBIB headquarters in Washington for this exclusive report, “NBIB: One Year in Business” produced by Colby Hochmuth.
