Video Introduction of the National Background Investigation System (NBIS)

This informational video series addresses a new, high priority mission for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA): the National Background Investigation System (NBIS).

DISA was tasked by the federal government to design, develop, secure, and operate an IT system to conduct background investigations for employees, military, and government contractors. The investigations will be conducted by the National Background Investigation Bureau (NBIB).
