2. A valid photo I.D. could be a Florida drivers license, out of state drivers license, Passport, or Alien Registration Card.
3. Make sure that you know your Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) number. This 9-digit number tells us where we have to send your fingerprints. Your organization or employer should have given you your ORI number. It will most likely be somewhere in the paperwork or email they gave you when they requested your fingerprints. You can also search for your specific ORI number on our ORI SEARCH Page.
-The ORI (Originating Agency Identifier) number is provided by the FDLE and identifies the agency requesting the criminal history check and tells the FDLE what the purpose of the fingerprints are. This number should be provided to you by your employer or governing agency.
-Without your ORI number, the FDLE can not process the background check and the FDLE will not know where the screening results are supposed to be sent.
-It is your responsibility to provide us with your correct ORI number, and we will not give a refund if you provided us with the incorrect ORI number.
-The OCA (Controlling Agency Identifier) tells the governing agency which company is requesting the background check. 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.
-VECHS screenings are most often accomplished to protect the “vulnerable” population, meaning children, elderly, and disabled. When a VECHS number is used, the background check results are returned directly into the Civil Workflow Control System (managed by a division within FDLE), and are used to make applicant suitability “determinations” which are then made available to the gaining organizations.
-VECHS numbers are specific to an individual company/organization, so they can only be obtained from either the organization or from the “VECHS division” within the FDLE.
You may check the status of your background check by enterring your TCN number here: https://web.fdle.state.fl.us/search/app/tcnlookup;jsessionid=6pqnCdKfeIhCTAMAoUN1QcjK

* If you're being sent by the Department of Children and Families (DCF), you will have an Organization Controlling Agency (OCA) number and an ORI number. The OCA number is provided by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and identifies the provider requesting the background check.
* Some people also have a Volunteer and Employee Criminal History Search (VECHS) number instead of an ORI number. Another confusing term, but it also works the same way as an ORI number, so just use it instead when making your reservation.
