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.

To enroll in E-Verify, you must provide your company’s basic contact information and agree to follow the rules of the program. After enrolling, you must sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that provides the terms of agreement between your company and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Go to Enroll in E-Verify to begin the enrollment process.

Once you have enrolled, E-Verify will review your information and activate your account. After the account is activated, you will receive an e-mail with your login instructions, user ID and password.

For more information on how to enroll, see the E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors.

If you are not currently enrolled in E-Verify, during enrollment, you must designate every hiring site at which you will:

1) Hire new employees, and/or
2) Verify existing employees.

If you are already enrolled in E-Verify and your company has been using E-Verify at only certain hiring sites, you must now designate all of your company’s hiring sites. You must also update your ‘Site Verification’ page as discussed in the E-Verify User Manual for Employers
