Daon has been awarded a contract by the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) to conduct criminal background checks on DHR licensed childcare and adult care providers, as well as adoptive parents, foster parents and certain DHR employees.
According to Daon: “Prior to implementing the new system, it was often taking months to process results on criminal history record checks using a manual submission system in place. With the support of the Department of Public Safety, DHR worked with DTIS to implement a system that reduces processing time by utilizing livescan technology to transmit fingerprints electronically. Under the new contract, DTIS will manage the automated electronic criminal history check system, and provide training and support. The result is a more efficient operation and faster 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, ” said Jack Ginsburg, SVP, sales and marketing at Daon. “At DTIS, we have created an infrastructure to support multiple programs and provide credentialing and identity management services. 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 Alabama and other states to provide cost-effective and secure services for their citizens.”
