The Berks County Intermediate Unit will be Suspending FBI Fingerprinting Services Effective November 18, 2017 through December 14, 2017 to Allow for Transitioning to a New Provider.

The Pennsylvania Department of General Services announced the selection of new supplier of Digital Fingerprint & Electronic Federal Criminal Background Check Services. It is expected that individuals who are required to provide their fingerprints to complete a federal criminal background check for employment should have an easier time navigating and completing the process.

The new contract supplier, Idemia (formerly MorphoTrust USA, LLC), will take over the fingerprinting services contract formerly held by Gemalto (formerly Cogent).

Examples of those who will benefit from the easier to use online process include, but are not limited to: applicants seeking employment in a school, currently employed in a school and recertifying or individuals who require a background check in order to volunteer; those seeking to work or volunteer with children requiring a background check, and others.
