The US GISOD Team is a leveraged organization and many of our members support multiple client projects. These client contracts may require background checks for all members working within the client environment. Additionally, some require screening above and beyond what is required as standard screening for CGI employment in the US; to include, but not limited to, additional criminal history, drug screening and credit reporting in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. These background checks are client specific and in most cases are not transferable from one client account to the next. In order to meet the requirements of a leveraged organization, members of the US GISOD team may be required to complete multiple background checks during their career at CGI. All new hires into the US GISOD team will be required to complete client background check requests within the timeframe stated in the client contract, as a condition of employment with CGI.
