Postal IG Finds Flaws in Vetting of Applicants

The Postal Service does not always adhere to background screening requirements in determining the suitability of job applicants with either a criminal record or unfavorable results on their background checks, an IG report has said.

The report said that job applicants must complete an initial screening process that includes an interview, drug screening, and local criminal background check. A final suitability decision is made after a National Agency Check with Inquiries, or NACI, check. However, a review found “inconsistent practices among the districts related to making final suitability determinations and maintaining adequate justification documentation.”
