NBIB Continues Background Investigations Amid Government Shutdown

The National Background Investigations Bureau is still running despite the partial government shutdown's effects on the Office of Personnel Management, Nextgov reported Wednesday.

The bureau continues to run on funds that customer agencies pay for investigation work. The NBIB has managed to cut a backlog of 725,000 investigations down to 600,000 between April and the end of 2018.

An official said the bureau intends to reduce the backlog to 300,000 this spring, the report noted.
