  4. Sign into E-Verify

    Certain types of organizations have unique E-Verify requirements so it's important for us to know if your company is a federal contractor with or without the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause or a federal, state or local government organization. If you select one of those categories, you may be asked additional questions related to that category. If none of those categories applies to your company, you should select 'None of these categories apply.'

    For additional information on the FAR E-Verify clause, see the E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors found at www. E-Verify.gov.

    You may change your organization designation at any time by updating your company profile in E-Verify.
