AHCA Background Screening APD Background Screening DCF Background Screening

Live Scan Fingerprinting Services in South Florida; Miami, Broward, and The Palm Beaches

Dear, AHCA & DCF Providers.


Beginning August 1, 2010 new law will require background screening of job applicants, employees and volunteers who come in contact with children, the developmentally disabled and vulnerable adults.


The most significant change in the law for AHCA& DCF providers is that applicants will not be allowed to begin work in position of special trust and responsibility until they are cleared for employment by a complete background screening, to include a fingerprint-based search of criminal records in Florida and nationally.


In order to meet new requirement, both AHCA and DCF strongly recommends applicants to complete their background screen using Live-Scan technology as oppose to hard card submission. Live-Scan results can be received by DCF background screeners in as little as 24-48 hours. This is comparison to hard card fingerprint submission where results can take up-to 4-6 weeks. Providers should follow the steps below to ensure they meet the requirements to use Live-Scan. Please contact your regional DCF background screening office to:


  •  Ensure you have been provided the DCF’s Originating Agency Identifier – ORI
  •  Ensure that Originating Agency Case Number – OCA had been assigned to you by DCF
  •  Provide a valid email address to your local DCF Background Screening Office upon requesting a Live-Scan OCA. Email provided will be the email address the department screening unit will send automated “eligible” determination letters for applicants with cleared results.


The correct ORI and OCA numbers must be provided to the Live Scan vendor to ensure that results are routed to the DCF and requesting provider. For more information and with any questions please feel free to contact IDENTICO- your Live-Scan vendor.
