Security Clearance Information

All candidates must be U.S. citizens due to government security clearance requirements.

BPMI requires that each of its employees obtain and maintain a Department of Energy security clearance.  If you receive and accept an offer of employment from BPMI, Human Resources will finalize your pre-employment background check.  Once your background check is finalized, you’ll then complete the online security clearance application also known as the Questionnaire for National Security Positions (QNSP) and schedule an appointment for badging at a BPMI location or a USAccess Shared Enrollment Center. The security clearance process is thorough and it can take several months before you could be granted a security clearance.

You can access a sample QNSP for your use in gathering relevant information to support e-QIP data entry. To access the document for printing, click here. Reminder: the sample QNSP is NOT an alternative to processing your QNSP electronically through e-QIP.

On the QNSP, you'll be asked to provide information regarding:

  • previous addresses
  • employment history
  • relatives
  • foreign travel and foreign contacts
  • police record
  • financial record
  • education
  • drug use
You should begin collecting this information as soon as possible so that once you receive an email from BPMI’s Security Department, you can immediately begin the online clearance application.

Discover your opportunity to make a difference.
