The E-Verify federal contractor rule requires federal contractors to enroll in E-Verify only if they are awarded federal contracts or have existing indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts that are bilaterally modified to contain the FAR E-Verify clause, on or after September 8, 2009.

If you have already enrolled in E-Verify and you are awarded a federal contract containing the FAR E-Verify clause on or after September 8, 2009, you must update your ‘Company Information’ page to designate yourself as a ‘Federal contractor with FAR E-Verify clause’ and take a federal contractor tutorial. For more information on enrolling in E-Verify, or, for existing users updating your enrollment status, see the E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors.
