Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF)

The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) is a state agency of Florida. The Florida DCF provides a multitude of social services to many groups of people, including children, adults, refugees, domestic violence victims, human trafficking victims, the homeless community, child care providers, disabled people, and elderly people.

Job applicants, providers, employees, and volunteers who come in contact with children, disabled people, and susceptible adults are now required to get a detailed live scan fingerprint background check by a certified vendor. DCF applicants are not permitted to be active until they are cleared for employment by a background screening by an approved vendor.

Prices and what you need to know

-The price that 1-Stop Fingerprinting charges for a DCF live-scan fingerprinting background check is $95 + TAX

-Make sure that you know both your Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) number and your Controlling Agency Identifier (OCA).

  • The ORI (Originating Agency Identifier) number is provided by the FDLE and identifies the agency requesting the criminal history check and basically tells the FDLE what the purpose of the fingerprints are. This number should be provided to you by your employer or governing agency.

The OCA number is a nine character number beginning with your 2 digit Circuit Number, your OCA, and ending with the letter “z”. This number should be provided to you by your employer. 
  • Without the ORI number and the OCA number, FDLE cannot process the request and the FDLE will not know where the screening results are supposed to be sent.
