The Web Services resource page is available to E-Verify participants only after they request to add Web Services as an access method.
Adopting Web Services requires a significant amount of time and financial investment to develop, test and implement a software interface. You will still, however, be required to comply with the E-Verify federal contractor time requirements.
The Employer Web Services ICA (Interface Control Agreement) contains the information you need to develop and test your software interface. You must enroll in E-Verify to develop Web Services applications. Once you enroll and sign your MOU, you then can request the ICA by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-Verify currently supports FAR access via Web Services on ICD versions 24 and higher, however, this may change as new versions become available in the future after which the earlier versions will be disabled.
The Web Services access method requires a company to develop software that interfaces with USCIS to create E-Verify cases for newly hired employees. Your company’s software will extract data from your existing system or an electronic Form I-9 and transmit the information to government databases. If you choose this option, you will be sent the Employer Web Services Interface Control Document (ICD). The ICD contains the information you need to develop and test your software interface.
