Corra Group is assisting federal contractors with conducting background checks in compliance with the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and defense industry standards. Some businesses have had longstanding contracts with either the federal government or public corporations, while others have been awarded recent contracts with private industry and must conduct background checks for any employee engaged in the project.
"Billions of dollars in stimulus funds are being awarded for contracts with government agencies," said Gordon Basichis, Co-Founder of Corra Group. The DHS alone will be receiving some $3 Billion to increase border and airport security, as well as IT Security and the construction of its new headquarters.
"Contractors approach us, asking if we can provide the requisite background searches. Some find the federal contracting compliance process confusing. The list of requirements at first appears problematic to the neophytes until they realize conducting the different background checks is simpler than it looks. They feel better when we clarify regarding the background checks.
"These clients are varied in size and the number of employees. This includes IT contractors and defense related businesses and companies requiring Tier Two compliance reporting, in relation to the hazardous materials stored at their facility."
To help these contractors meet the demands of The Department of Homeland Security, Corra Group has created a special Federal Contractor Package that addresses the background screening directives mandated by the Patriot Act and DHS, federal and state governmental agencies, as well private sector corporations.
“Our Federal Contractor Package provides clients with every background check they need to be compliant with the Patriot Act and any other government mandates,” said Nick Gustavson, Co-Founder of Corra Group. “The package includes the Global Terror Watch List, federal, county, and state criminal reports, employment and education verification, the Nationwide Criminal Database Search, the Sex Offender Registry, and the Social Security Trace.
“The background searches within this package can return to our clients from between one and four days,” Gustavson added. “Our clients can always add on optional background searches, like MVRs or motor vehicle driving records, and credit reports.
"Some IT groups may need to request an international background screening. Our state-of-the-art ordering system enables a quick and easy interface.”
Corra Group services IT Security and the defense related industry throughout the United States and around the world. The company also provides Motor Vehicle Driving Records and background checking services to trucking companies seeking to meet Department of Transportation compliance standards.
