The District government assesses the suitability (character, reputation, and fitness for duty) of each applicant, appointee, volunteer, and employee through uniform background checks, and drug and alcohol testing as deemed necessary. E-DPM Instruction No. 4-38 outlines the requirements for enhanced suitability screening for safety, protection, and security sensitive positions as indicated in Chapter 4, Suitability, of the D.C. personnel regulations. These requirements remain unchanged and in effect.
To better reflect concurrency with Federal and District law, and to improve the suitability investigation process, the District of Columbia Department of Human Resources has revised the language in the forms used for enhanced suitability screening. The language in the forms have been updated to include additional information on applicant legal rights and obligations, clarification for consumer credit checks, additional fields for applicant information, and to simplify the field names. This issuance provides these forms as Attachments.
For additional information concerning this issuance, please contact the Department of Human Resources, Policy and Compliance Administration, by calling (202) 442-9700 or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
