A “Smart Search®” includes: Smart Search® is a proprietary package of criminal and exclusionary record searches. It begins with a Social Security Number Trace (for address history and possible alias/maiden names) and a Multi-Jurisdictional database search of over 2000 Federal Sanctions, State, County, and Municipality sources Including, but not limited to: Criminal Records, All available Sex Offender Registries (Updated Weekly), and Multiple Exclusions/Debarment Lists including OFAC exclusions list.
To further enhance the comprehensive coverage, additional jurisdictions are added as necessary based on a proprietary selection process to make sure no jurisdictions are missed based on best coverage without paying for multiple, duplicate or overlapping jurisdictions. In addition, any possible criminal records that are located are also verified at the appropriate court record repository prior to returning results to ensure compliance with the FCRA (section 613) requirements. The Smart Search® Plus package also includes a search of any Federal Criminal jurisdictions the applicant has lived (in the past 7 or 10 years).
All of our reports are FCRA compliant. Our Criminal record “Smart Search® Plus” includes all of the criminal records background checks above and also includes a check of the separately maintained Federal Criminal Records in every state in which the applicant has lived for the past 7 years.
