Frequently Asked Questions

What are fingerprints needed for?

Fingerprinting is required for many reasons. Some of the most common are:

  • Medical/Nursing Licensing
  • Foreign Passport Renewals
  • Concealed Pistol Licensing (CPL)
  • Immigration Purposes
  • Adoption Applications
  • Firearm Licensing
  • Employment Background Checks
What's an ORI number?

An ORI, or Originating Agency Identifier, identifies the agency that originated the fingerprinting request. For a civil applicant, it’s the agency requiring you to 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. Moreover, 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.

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

How do I get an FBI fingerprint background check?

In order to obtain your background check, you must submit fingerprint cards to the FBI. Alliance 2020 works with you to secure the documentation needed to run the background check. The results are mailed directly to you within two to four weeks.

How do I get a WSP fingerprint background check?

In order to obtain a fingerprint-based background check for Washington state, you must submit a fingerprint card to the Washington State Patrol (WSP). Alliance 2020 works with you to facilitate your fingerprint background check. Results are generally available within two to four weeks.
