Daon contracted by state to conduct criminal background checks

Earlier this week, Daon announced that a southern state has awarded it two large contracts to conduct criminal background checks on licensed childcare and adult care providers, as well as adoptive parents, foster parents and certain other recipients of state benefits.

The new contract calls for Daon to install necessary equipment, operate the electronic criminal history check system, and provide training and support. This should lead to a more efficient operation, faster background checks and a significant cost savings to the participating state, which had a requirement for more than 20, 000 background checks annually with much of the work previously being done manually and taking more than two months to return background checks.

“The ability to protect citizens and assets through background checks and identity assurance is crucial to both federal and state governments, as well as employers. At Daon, we have created an infrastructure to support multiple programs and provide credentialing and identity management services, ” said Daon CEO Tom Grissen. “This platform provides a “one-stop-shop” for background checks, uniqueness checks, credential creation, system management, and system reporting and payment processing. We welcome the opportunity to work with states to provide cost-effective and secure services for their citizens.”
