Chapter 4. Position Risk and Sensitivity Designations

4.1 Position Risk Designation

The position risk designation is a determination of a position's potential for adverse impact to the efficiency or integrity of the service or national security. A position may be determined to be low, moderate, or high risk.

4.2 Position Sensitivity Designation

The position sensitivity designation is assigned based on the need of the incumbent to access national security information. A position may be designated at the non-critical sensitive, critical-sensitive, or special-sensitive level.

4.3 Position Risk and Sensitivity Designation Determination

4.3.1 The position risk and sensitivity designations together determine the level of background investigation required for the incumbent to hold the position.

4.3.2 Position sensitivity and risk level are based on the documented duties and responsibilities of the position. If an employee's duties overlap into a higher or lower risk or sensitivity level, the position risk and sensitivity designation is set at the highest level.

4.3.3 Position risk and sensitivity designations for existing positions may be reevaluated at any time; however, at a minimum, designations will be reviewed when supervisors review and recertify position descriptions, as directed by NPD 3511.1.

4.3.4 The position risk and sensitivity designation is documented in the Agency electronic Position Description System (e-PDS) using the OPM Position Designation Tool.
