Fingerprint Information

What Is an ORI Number?

A commonly asked question about the fingerprinting process 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. 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.

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.

FBI Has Extensive Records

The federal government has 77.7 million people in 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.

FBI Fingerprint Background Checks

Can I get a fingerprint-based background check for the FBI? The answer is yes. In order to obtain your background check, you will need to submit fingerprint cards to the FBI. Alliance 2020 works with you to secure all the necessary documents to obtain your background check. The results can be mailed to you or your attorney directly. Background checks results are generally returned within two to four weeks.

WSP Fingerprint Background Checks

In order to obtain a fingerprint-based background check for the State of Washington, you will need to submit fingerprint cards 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.

Fingerprint Cards

Alliance 2020 provides FBI FD-258 Fingerprint Cards, if you do not already have them. Sometimes an applicant will need fingerprints on a different type of card or on a piece of paper. In this event, we can still accomdate you.

Fingerprint Card Instructions

The applicant’s fingerprints will be used to check the criminal records of the FBI. The procedures for obtaining a change, correction, or updating of your criminal history record are set forth in Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 16.34.

Keep the information entered within the blocks provided. The FBI indicates that their card scanners cannot pick up the required information if it overlaps the blue border of the block.
