Government Agencies

The Problem

The past ten years have seen a massive growth in laws that require State Agencies to conduct background checks on individuals who seek various state licenses, work with vulnerable populations, and other publicly funded programs. The programs encompass many State Agencies: Health (including professional licensing, long term care, and Medicaid), Child and adult protective services (including foster and adoptive custodians, personal care, and adult programs), various professional positions of special public concern (e.g. locksmiths, hazmat drivers, securities dealers), and even public assistance recipients. The different programs were implemented at different times for different reasons; several management problems have arisen as the size and variety of applicant background check programs have grown:

  • Applicants are required to undergo multiple background checks unnecessarily
  • Information that could be shared between State Agencies is not Paperwork of payment, fingerprints cards, consent forms, and criminal history reports are overburdening agencies and adding to costs
  • Notification and recordkeeping requirements have increased

The Solution

InnovativeBCS Framework is being used for solving the background check management problems of State Agencies in health, child and adult protection, licensing, and other agencies. We have customized approaches to all aspects of managing the background check process including:

  • Eliminating paper throughout the background check process. This saves time and money for the State, the applicants, and employers, licensing boards or other parties who needs the background check results.
  • Seamlessly incorporate your State’s automated payment or reimbursable service agreement process. Provide “one-stop shopping’ for all types of data needed to complete the background screening process including fingerprinting, public databases (registries), and criminal history from your State Criminal Identification Agencies.
  • Provide information to your agencies whenever new information is available for previously screened applicants.
