OPM mails the INV 10 questionnaire to a random sampling of record and personal sources contacted during background investigations when investigators have performed fieldwork. The INV 10 is used as a quality control instrument designed to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product, as it inquires of the sources about the investigative procedure employed by the investigator, the investigator's professionalism, and the information discussed and reported. In addition to the preformatted response options, OPM invites the recipients to respond with any other relevant comments or suggestions. It is estimated that 63,869 individuals will respond annually. The INV 10 takes approximately 6 minutes to complete. The estimated annual burden is 6,387 hours.U.S. Office of Personnel Management. John Berry, Director.
