XVI. BACKGROUND CHECK COSTS


Criminal History Background Checks conducted by the Office of Human Resources for employment, volunteer service, or vendor/contractor work are reconciled with the hiring department via Auxiliary AR/Billing Purchase Orders. To create a Purchase Order for your department for Background Checks, please see this Office of the Controller’s Auxiliary AR/Billing Training Guide.

Background Check costs are subject to change due to fee changes from the FBI, FDLE, or fees incurred from other local city, county, state, or federal laws. The background check auxiliary does not generate revenue for The Office of Human Resources.
