E-Verify

When must a federal contractor enroll in E-Verify?

The E-Verify federal contractor rule requires federal contractors to enroll in E-Verify only if they are awarded 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 User Manual for Federal Contractors.
