New Criminal Background Check process

Posted on Jan 6, 2014

UW-Superior will be utilizing a new service provider in conducting required Criminal Background Checks (CBCs). The new provider is General Information Services, Inc. (GIS) of Chapin, South Carolina and is the result of a new contract implemented through UW System Administration. This change will result in both cost and service efficiencies.In the interest of efficiency, there will be minor changes in the way CBCs are processed. Similar to our on-line application process, now CBCs will also be completed online through the new provider. The previous procedure required that an applicant complete a CBC authorization form and submit the form to the Human Resources Department for processing, often times involving the hiring department. Effective immediately, there is no further need for applicants or volunteers to provide a completed authorization form to the Human Resources Department. The usual appointment processing will alert the Human Resources Department to work directly with the applicant or volunteer with the on-line CBC procedures. CBC authorizations will be handled on-line and it is anticipated a continuation of a two (2) to three (3) day turn-around for results. Hiring authorities will be notified in the same usual email manner once results are obtained.
