A Frequently asked question about the process of fingerprinting as a civil applicant is what is an ORI number? An ORI, or Originating Agency Identifier, basically identifies the agency that has originated the request. For a civil applicant, it’s the agency that has told you that you must undergo a fingerprint-based background check.

The code is assigned by the FBI or a state’s main law enforcement agency based on state or federal legislation that allows or requires applicants for the agency to undergo the check. Further, it tells the law enforcement agency conducting the background check who to send the results to. The authorized agency is not allowed by state and FBI rules to share the results of the background check with any other person or entity.

An ORI will generally be a 9-digit alpha-numeric code consisting of 2 digits identifying the state and 6-7 numerals and perhaps ending with a letter. Some states issue Agency ID’s which follow a different format but serve the same purpose

The federal government has 77.7 million people its master criminal files, from felonies to misdemeanors- even if the charges were thrown out. That means the government has records on roughly one in three American adults. Once the FBI has a file, it will remain active for 110 years, even if a person wasn’t convicted or the charges against them were dropped.
