Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions we get. If there’s anything more you want to know, don’t hesitate to contact us.

How long does the onboarding process take?

Typically 30-45 days for licensed independent providers (LIP) but we have been able to onboard in 7-10 days, which is in line with non-licensed independent providers.

Do I need a license for this state?

In most cases with the federal government, you are able to work in any federal facility as long as you have a valid license in any state.

What happens if I love working at the VA and want to transition to a Government employee (GS)?

EGA is here to support the Veterans – if you love the job, our team will work to onboard you with the client and support your transition.

What is VetPro?

The VA credentialing system that is used to verify/validate credentials for all licensed independent providers (LIP).

I’ve already had my fingerprints/ background done with another organization, do I need to get it done again?

In some cases, we can work to have the fingerprints transferred but the majority of the time it is easier to go into the local VA and obtain new prints to start the background investigation (BI) and not cause any delays with interagency transfers

Does EGA offer benefits?

Yes – we offer a full suite of benefits to our qualified employees.
