Understanding SWFT

Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission (SWFT)

Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission (SWFT) streamlines fingerprint submissions for background investigations required by agencies like the Office of Personnel Management, Department of Defense, and National Industrial Security Program. By obtaining an Electronic Fingerprint Transmission (EFT) file via SWFT instead of mailing paper cards, you accelerate the clearance process and bypass mail delays.

Industrial security facilities registered in the Defense Manpower Data Center’s database can submit employee EFT files directly to comply with the National Industrial Security Program. Our FBI-approved tools generate compliant electronic records to meet your company’s needs.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Secure Web Fingerprint Transmission, or SWFT, is a way to online collect and send fingerprint information so that different government organisations can do background checks.

Many important federal organisations, including the Department of Defence (DOD), the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and the National Industrial Security Programme (NISP), require this for security clearances.

Companies are allowed to keep the electronic file once it has been submitted through SWFT until the FBI findings are available in JPAS as a special agreement check (SAC). Nevertheless, no longer than 120 days should it be retained.

If you want to know if you're eligible for a clearance or job, the federal agency that handles background checks uses your fingerprints to look you up in criminal databases and other records.

Sending the electronic fingerprint file to the Personnel Security Management Office for Industry (PSMO-I) through SWFT immediately following the e-QIP release is recommended for best outcomes.

Before taking your fingerprint, make sure your hands are dry and clear of anything that might distort the image. Relaxing and paying close attention to the technician's directions are also useful.

Yes, SWFT develops rigorous security standards, provides end-to-end accountability for sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data, speeds up the background check process by reducing invalid fingerprint submissions, and eliminates the need for paper-based capture and handling of fingerprints.
