FOR THOSE POSITIONS REQUIRING A FEDERAL SECURITY CLEARANCE...
If you are applying for a position that requires a Federal security clearance and have never had a Federal security clearance before (or not one at the required level, or - any previous clearance you may have had is no longer within scope), then you will likely need to access the Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing (e-QIP) system, hosted by the Defense Security and Counterintelligence Agency (DCSA) and begin the security clearance process.
Here is a link to the e-QIP webpage on the DCSA website. This page explains the e-QIP process, has instructions for first-time logins, and a step-by-step guide for completing the online SF-86 form required for Federal security clearances.
Note that you will not be able to initially log in to e-QIP before receiving your personal e-QIP registration code from our company Facility Security Officer (FSO). This code is specific to your potential position at Summit, so even if you have used e-QIP in the past, you will need a new code for this position.
However, it will be very useful for you to access the e-QIP webpage and familiarize yourself with the process, especially the "Guide for the SF-86" PDF file which will help you understand what will be needed to complete the form once you receive your code. The SF-86 form is the primary tool used to apply for a security clearance, and from which the Government will initiate their investigation and adjudication of your application. The form requires a significant amount of personal and family information, so you can save time by gathering that information ahead of time, which will in turn help you submit your completed application that much faster after receiving your registration code.
After visiting the e-QIP webpage and reading the Guide for the SF-86, if you have any questions about this process please feel free to contact the Summit FSO and they will be glad to assist you. The Summit FSO can be reached at Security@SummitFederalServices.com. For detailed questions or issues on the eQip form or process itself, applicants are encouraged to contact the Vetting Risk Operations Center (VROC) directly at 888-282-7682.
