DIA will ask you to complete pre-employment forms which include the SF-86 background questionnaire for a security clearance. When you return the pre-employment forms, we will request our vendor to schedule a drug screening test. You will not receive a final official offer letter until all required documentation has been received and a security clearance is approved.
* Please note: As marijuana is legalized in more states across the United States, the DIA remains a drug free workplace. Federal law and Executive branch policy prohibit the use of marijuana in any form, whether recreational or medicinal.
Marijuana is categorized as a controlled substance under Schedule I of the Controlled Substance Act. Intentional marijuana possession is illegal, even if an individual has no intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense marijuana.
Federal law on marijuana use remains unchanged. Executive Order 12564, Drug-Free Federal Workplace, mandates that:
- (a) Federal employees are required to refrain from the use of illegal drugs;
- (b) the use of illegal drugs by Federal employees, whether on or off duty, is contrary to the efficiency of the service; and
- (c) Persons who use illegal drugs are not suitable for Federal employment.
