Extended Services Still a Work in Progress

OPM further said it is working to carry out legislation enacted in December requiring that the services for both incidents continue for 10 years and that the liability insurance maximum be raised to $5 million from $1 million. One complication is that the services for the two incidents are being provided by different companies under separate contracts, with the one for the personnel files breach running only through this year but the one for the background investigation files breach running through 2018. They also differ in some ways; for example, the investigation files services include identity monitoring for minor children but the personnel files services don’t.
