ECHCS Research WOC Application Packet Wizard
» Home » VA WOC Application Packet Wizard

To work within the VA research service as a WOC (Without Compensation Employee), contractor or IPA, you are required to fill out the WOC application packet.

By filling out the application you are ensuring that the information presented is truthful and accurate. All forms must be typed (not hand written). If the WOC forms are not properly filled out the entire WOC packet will be denied as VA HR will not accept it.
Once the packet has been filled out the packet must be brought physically to the ECHCS Denver VA research service at the below location.
As part of the WOC process you will be required to undergo a VA initiated background investigation.

Filling out the WOC application does not guarantee that you will be hired and if you are hired it does not make you a Federal employee it makes you a contracted employee of the federal goverment.

  8. Are you going to need keys to certain labs, and if so, which ones? (If you donít know, ask your PI)
  9. Are you going to need CPRS which is either COR or RPTS?

    • COR = This is to be able to change information in patient records
    • RPTS = This is to be able to make notes within patient records
  10. Are you going to need VISTA access?
