Department Representatives and Hiring Managers:
Background Check Rates
As you may have heard Accurate Background Inc. was recently awarded a new contract that includes packages with more comprehensive screening capabilities. To align these new packages with various fee increases incurred over the years from the FBI, FDLE, and other state and local jurisdictions, University background check packages must implement a rate adjustment for the first time since 2015. The rate changes outlined below will be effective for all background checks conducted after July 1, 2022, and the new rates will be reflected in the following month’s billing cycle.
As a reminder, the University Background Check payment process transitioned to the Auxiliary Accounts Receivable and Billing process effective July 1, 2018. All departments must have an active Purchase Order each year. To create a Purchase Order, please see the Auxiliary AR/Billing OMNI Training Guide. To update an existing Purchase Order, please complete an Internal Purchase Order Change Request Form.
Pursuant to University Policy 4-OP-D-1.II.C.2.b the new rate schedule includes a separate rate when charging sponsored contracts and grants. Any additional city, county, or state fees associated with these individual screenings will be applied. For additional information, please see the Sponsored Regulations page. For a complete list of background check costs, see the Background Check Costs Page of the Background Check Website.
