Before You Report

Supervisor New Supervisor Reporting Day Badge

Welcome to the National Security Division. We are pleased to have you join us in our proud tradition of public service to our fellow Americans. We want to help you hit the ground running and start your employment as smoothly as possible, so we have organized this page to help answer questions and get you started before your first day. Please follow this page from beginning to end. There are some items that must be done before you begin working.

Before your first day, you will need to fill out several forms. To ease in the convenience of completing this task, we've created a Forms section on this site. On this page, each form is listed separately with a hyperlink, instructions, and who qualifies as a submitter for each. Completing all of these forms can take one to two hours, so please be sure to set aside enough time for this task. You'll find instructions for each form on the page; however, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Human Resource Specialist.

When you are ready to begin, simply go to the Forms page:

Your Supervisor

Your new supervisor will contact you by phone or e-mail at least one week before your start date. He or she will welcome you and answer any questions you may have about your new position. If you do not know who your supervisor is or have not heard from one, simply contact your Human Resource Specialist.

Department of Justice Identification Badge

Getting a DOJ identification badge takes several steps. You may be issued a temporary badge when you arrive.

In compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), DOJ has implemented a personal identity verification (PIV) system that leverages smart card technology to increase security and efficiency. Each long-term (6 months or longer) DOJ employee or contractor must get a PIVCard, which is the primary card used for accessing DOJ facilities and information systems.

The DOJ PIVCard provides access to facilities and computer systems (workstations, networks, and applications). Unlike building access cards of the past, the DOJ PIVCard represents a person's identity and provides three-factor authentication: something you have (the PIVCard), something you know (your PIN), and something you are (your photo and fingerprint).
