Authorization for Criminal History Information
1
Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 15660, an employer may request criminal record
information from the Department of Justice (DOJ) of a non-licensed employee who provides
non-medical domestic or personal care to an aged or disabled adult (including the mentally impaired)
in the adult's own home.
Information released by the DOJ is restricted to arrests resulting in conviction or arrests which are
pending adjudication for the crimes as specified in Welfare and Institution Code Section 15660.
"Employer" is defined as any in-home supportive services recipient, as defined by Section 12302.2,
an aged or disabled adult who is ineligible for benefits under Chapter 3 (commencing with Section
12000), who receives care by a person as described with paragraph (2), any recipient of personal
care services under the Medi-Cal program pursuant to Sections14132.95–14132.97, inclusive, and
any public authority or nonprofit consortium, as described in subdivision (a) of Section 12301.6.
Throughout this package, there is a reference to licensing. The DOJ is not a licensing agency and
background checks pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 15660 do not meetlicensing
background requirements.
In order for us to determine whether your organization meets the requirements to obtain state
criminal history information pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 15660, please
complete and return the attached application package. Incomplete forms will be returned
unprocessed. Please do not submit your fingerprint(s) until approval has been granted.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Pursuant to Penal Code (PC) section 11102.2(b), the DOJ established a confirmation program to process
fingerprint-based background responses on individuals designated by applicant agencies to serve as
Custodian of Records. Effective January 1, 2011, no person shall serve as an agency COR unless they have
been confirmed by the DOJ. Criminal justice agency personnel who have undergone a state and federal
criminal record background check for their agency (currently employed) are exempt from these requirements.
As such, before any applicant agency can become fully authorized by the DOJ, the DOJ must first
confirm/approve the agency's designated COR.
A COR means the individual is designated by an agency as responsible for the hiring
decisions, and for the security, storage, dissemination, and destruction of the criminal records furnished to
the agency, and who serves as the primary contact for the DOJ for any related issues. Each agency must
designate at least one COR.
Applicants applying for Custodian of Records confirmation must meet the following criteria:
1. Be at least 18 year old;
2. Complete and submit the Custodian of Records Application Form (BCIA 8374).
The confirmation process will consist of a completed BCIA 8374 form, which is included in this packet and
must be returned along with all required documents. Additionally, the COR must submit fingerprint images to
the DOJ via live scan and pay the $49 state/federal background check fees along with a $30.00 confirmation
fee (a total of $79 in fees will be collected at the live scan site).
Included in this packet is a pre-filled Custodian of Records Request for Live Scan Service (BCIA 8016) form
ready to be utilized to fulfill this requirement once your agency is authorized. PLEASE NOTE: You must
enter all of your Agency's information in the "Employer (Additional response for agencies specified by
statute)" field, with the exception of the Mail Code on the BCIA 8016 form, in order for the DOJ to process
your submission.
Confirmation will be denied or revoked on those applicants convicted of a felony offense, or any other
offense that involves moral turpitude, dishonesty, fraud or that impacts the applicant’s ability to perform
the duties or responsibilities of a COR. The DOJ will retain the fingerprints for subsequent arrest notification
pursuant to PC section 11105.2. COR confirmation, denial, or revocation letters will be mailed by the DOJ to
the designated applicant agency, as identified on the application by the COR applicant.
PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT SUBMIT CUSTODIAN OF RECORDS FINGERPRINT IMAGES UNTIL YOU
HAVE RECEIVED CONFIRMATION FROM THE DOJ THAT YOUR AGENCY IS AUTHORIZED.
After submitting this application, the DOJ's Applicant Information and Certification Program at
authorizationquestions@doj.ca.gov will determine if your agency is authorized and ready for the next step.
Beginning the confirmation process by submitting your COR fingerprint images before your agency is officially
authorized to request criminal record information will result in fees being assessed, which will not be refunded if
your agency is determined as not having requesting authority.
Authorization for Custodian of Records Information
Applicant Live Scan Overview
Applicant Live Scan is a system for the electronic submission of applicant fingerprints and the subsequent
automated background check and response. Live scan technology replaces the process of recording an
individual's fingerprint patterns manually through a rolling process using ink and a standard 8" x 8"
fingerprint card. Fingerprints can be digitalized through an electronic process (Live Scan), enabling the
electronic transfer of the fingerprint image data, in combination with personal descriptor information, to
central computers at the Department of Justice (DOJ). This transfer of information takes place in a matter
of seconds, instead of the days required to send hard copy fingerprint cards through the U.S. mail. The
applicant visits an Applicant Live Scan satellite location where the fingerprint images and related data are
electronically transmitted to the DOJ. The recent, rapid expansion of the number of applicant live scan
devices has resulted in an ever increasing volume of applicants availing themselves of live scan technology.
With Live Scan, the applicant is provided with a "Request for Live Scan Service" form (BCIA 8016). The
applicant is also provided with a list of nearby live scan locations and must go to one of the specified
locations to submit fingerprints. At these locations, a trained, certified operator enters the information from
the BCIA 8016 form into the live scan terminal and initiates the live scan fingerprinting process. After
successful electronic capture of the fingerprint images and the accompanying data, the information is
electronically transmitted to the DOJ.
Once the fingerprints and data are received by the DOJ, they are electronically processed by the DOJ
Global Transaction Controller (GTC). Most live scan submissions that have no data or quality errors and
do not result in possible criminal history matches are processed automatically and are responded to
electronically. Live scan transmissions requiring analysis of a criminal record are electronically sent
to the Applicant Response Unit for analysis and dissemination. Live scan submissions are responded
to by electronic mail, and/or U.S. mail when the electronic mail response is not available.
The DOJ will also coordinate other electronic processes resulting from the automated submissions of
fingerprints, including forwarding the fingerprints to the FBI (if required) and coordinating the collection of
associated fees.
We sincerely hope that this information will be useful and will answer your questions about the
electronic processing of fingerprints in California.

APPLICANT LIVE SCAN BILLING PROCEDURES
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has developed the following procedures for the billing and collection of
fingerprint fees. The first requirement in the applicant Live Scan Billing process is to provide the DOJ with
billing authorization to allow fee collection for services provided. Agencies must provide the following:
* All applicant agencies who wish to be billed for submitting fingerprints via Live Scan must
complete form CJIS 9000, Billing Account Application.
* Non-state Live Scan agencies (e.g., public schools) must complete a Memorandum of
Understanding.
* State agencies (e.g., Social Services) with Live Scan devices must complete a new Interagency
Agreement even if they currently have one.
The approved agencies will be assigned a DOJ billing number to be used for background check fees. The
DOJ billing number cannot be used for the rolling fees. The following actions must occur in order for the
DOJ to generate a monthly invoice for services and to ensure that the correct agency is billed for services
received.
* The Live Scan operator must input a customer billing number on every applicant Live Scan
transmission sent to the DOJ. The customer billing number keyed should be either the number
for the live scan agency or the licensing applicant agency, to be determined as follows:
> Applicant Agency - The requesting agency is responsible for the information entered on
the 8016 form provided to the applicant. If the billing number is entered on the
Contributing Agency Section (in the area title "BIL") of the 8016 form, the Live Scan
operator will enter the billing number and the requesting agency will be billed. If the
requesting agency does not want to be billed for the applicant, "APPLICANT MUST PAY"
is entered on the 8016 form in place of the billing number.
> Live Scan Agency - If the live scan agency collects cash, credit, or a check on behalf
of the DOJ for payment of the background check fees, the Live Scan operator will enter the
Live Scan Site billing number. The Live Scan Site will be billed by the DOJ for the
background fees collected.
> Please note - If the applicant is fee exempt, the Live Scan operator must still enter the
Live Scan agency's customer billing number into the transmission. No charges will
be billed to the agency for fee exempt transmissions.
> If the applicant is not fee exempt, does not pay for services, and there is no billing number
on the Request for Live Scan Service form, the Live Scan operator should not fingerprint
the applicant.
*** Applicant Agencies are not required to complete the Billing Account Application (CJIS 9000) if its
applicants will be paying the DOJ fees at the Live Scan Site ***
* The DOJ Accounting Office will generate invoices based on the Live Scan transmission
information thirty days in arrears. Based on the monthly billing cycle, each agency will be billed
for transmissions occurring between the first day and the last day of the prior month. The agency
will generally receive invoices within the first fifteen working days of the month.
9
* The CJIS Executive Office, Billing Unit (BU) will bill for fingerprint transmissions on a monthly
basis. To begin receiving monthly fingerprint billings along with a billing detail, your agency must
have both an Agency ORI number and a customer billing number. If you do not have an ORI
number, complete this packet and mail the packet including CJIS 9000 - Billing Account
Application to DOJ. If you already have an ORI number, call (916) 227-3870 (Option #4) and in
approximately 1-2 weeks you will receive the assigned customer billing number. The monthly
billing detail report will consist of the applicant's name, fingerprint date, and total fingerprint fees
billed.
* Payment to DOJ is due upon receipt of the invoice. If there are discrepancies, please complete
Form BCII 9006 - Credit Request - Applicant Live Scan Fingerprint Billing and fax to BU at
(916) 227-1149, listing the applicant(s) in dispute. The Credit Request form is available on the
internet at http://ag.ca.gov/fingerprints/forms/BCII%209006.pdf. Please pay promptly for those
charges with which you agree, and short pay the invoice by the amount of charges in dispute.
The BU will notify the agency if it denies the Credit Request. NOTE: If an agency does not
submit a Credit Request, the agency will be held liable for the outstanding charges. Failure to
remit payment in a timely manner may result in the agency being sent to collections and having
its customer billing number disabled. The DOJ will not accept Credit Requests received three or
more years after final payment of an invoice. Credit and rebill information will appear at the
bottom of the monthly billing detail report the month following a credit request.
* The applicant agency will be responsible for payment if the fields on Form BCIA 8016 - Request
for Live Scan Service are not completed correctly. Therefore, it is extremely important that the
agency follow the Form BCIA 8016 Instructions available on the internet at
https://oag.ca.gov/fingerprints/forms.
* The Live Scan agency will be responsible for payment if the operator fails to input a customer
billing number or inputs an incorrect billing number and/or applicant agency information, and the
DOJ cannot determine which agency should be billed for the transmission.
Please call the BU at (916) 227-3870 for any of the following:
1. Establish a customer billing number (only if the ORI and electronic response codes have already
been established).
2. Update billing contact information.
3. To resolve Live Scan Billing discrepancies.

SECURITY OF CRIMINAL OFFENDER RECORD INFORMATION
Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) is information identified through fingerprint submission to the
Department of Justice (DOJ) with a criminal record or "No Record". It is confidential information
disseminated to applicant agencies authorized by California statute for the purposes of employment,
licensing, certification, and volunteer clearances. The following information describes each agency's
responsibility toward accessing, storage, handling, dissemination, and destruction of CORI.
Background
Penal Code sections 11105 and 13300 identify who may have access to criminal history information and
under what circumstances it may be released.
The DOJ maintains the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS) that provides
law enforcement agencies with information directly from federal, state, and local computerized information
files. However, restrictions have been placed on the user to ensure that the rights of all citizens of
California are properly protected.
Article 1, section 1 of the California Constitution grants California citizens an absolute right to privacy.
Individuals or agencies violating these privacy rights place themselves at both criminal and civil liability.
Laws governing Californians' right-to-privacy were created to curb, among other things, the excessive
collection and retention of personal information by government agencies, the improper use of information
properly obtained for a proper purpose, and lack of a reasonable check on the accuracy of existing records.
(White v. Davis (1975) 13 Cal. 3d 757,775.)
Employment Background Checks
It is only through the submission of fingerprints to the DOJ that the true identity of an individual can be
established. In a 1977 lawsuit (Central Valley v. Younger), the court ruled that only arrest entries resulting in
conviction, and arrest entries that indicate active prosecution, may be provided for evaluation for
employment, licensing, or certification purposes.
Exceptions
Some statutory provisions, such as those relating to youth organizations, schools, and financial institutions,
further limit information dissemination to conviction for specific offenses. Records provided for criminal
justice agency employment as defined in Section 13101 of the Penal Code are exempt from these
limitations. In addition, arrest information for certain narcotic and sex crimes, irrespective of disposition,
will be provided for employment with a human resource agency as defined in section 1250 of the Health
and Safety Code. Other exceptions are listed in the CLETS Policies, Practices, and Procedures
(section 1.6.1).

APPLICANT FINGERPRINT RESPONSE SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT
SECURITY OF CRIMINAL OFFENDER RECORD INFORMATION (continued)
Unauthorized Access and Misuse
The unauthorized access and misuse of CORI may affect an individual's civil rights. Additionally, any
person intentionally disclosing information obtained from personal or confidential records maintained by a
state agency or from records within a system of records maintained by a governmental agency has violated
various California statutes. There are several code sections that provide penalties for misuse or
unauthorized use of CORI.
Authorized Access
CORI shall be accessible only to the Records Custodian and/or hiring authority charged with determining
the suitability for employment or licensing of an applicant. The information received shall be used by the
requesting agency solely for the purpose for which it was requested and shall not be reproduced for
secondary dissemination to any other employment or licensing agency.
The retention and sharing of information between employing and licensing agencies are strictly prohibited.
Retention and sharing of information infringes upon the right of privacy as defined in the California
Constitution, and fails to meet the compelling state interest defined in Loder v. Municipal Court (1976)17
Cal. 3d859. In addition, maintenance of CORI separate from the information maintained by the DOJ
precludes subsequent record updates and makes it impossible for the DOJ to control dissemination of CORI
as outlined in section 11105 of the Penal Code.
CLETS Policies, Practices, and Procedures state that any information transmitted or received via CLETS is
confidential and for official use only by authorized personnel (section 1.6.4). The California Code of
Regulations, Article 1, section 703, addresses the "right and need" to know CLETS-provided information.
The Bureau of Criminal Information and Analysis (BCIA) recommends that state summary criminal
history records, obtained for employment, licensing, or certification purposes, be destroyed once a decision
is made to employ, license, or certify the subject of the record. Agencies that either are mandated or
permitted by California statute to receive subsequent arrest notifications pursuant to Penal Code (PC)
section 11105.2 must complete a Contract for Subsequent Arrest Notification Service (BCIA 8049).
Retention of criminal history records beyond this time should be based on documented legal authority and
need. Any records retained must be stored in a secured, confidential file. The agency should designate a
specific person responsible for the confidentiality of the record and have procedures to prevent further
dissemination of the record, unless such dissemination is specifically provided for by law or regulation.

APPLICANT FINGERPRINT RESPONSE SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT
As an agency receiving background clearance information in response to the submission of applicant
fingerprint cards to the DOJ, you are aware of the regulations regarding the security of the hard copy
information that you currently receive. The purpose of this Subscriber Agreement is to restate existing
regulations and clarify how they apply to the electronic receipt of this same information via fax or e-mail.
There are no new regulations. Items 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7 restate existing regulations relative to receiving hard
copy information. Item 2 has been expanded to include electronic information. Items 3 and 6 are intended
to clarify these regulations relative to electronic information.
In accordance with section 11077 of the Penal Code, the Attorney General is responsible for the security
of criminal offender record information. Section 707(a) of the California Code of Regulations requires that
"Automated systems handling criminal offender record information and the information derived
therefrom shall be secure from unauthorized access, alteration, deletion, or release. The computer
terminals shall be located in secure premises."
This agreement is between the
and the Department of Justice for the purposes of the exchange of criminal offender record information.
The above agrees that:
1. Criminal offender record information and the information derived therefrom shall be accessible
only to the records custodian and/or hiring authority charged with determining the suitability
of the applicant.
2. Confidential information received electronically or via mail shall be used solely for the purpose
for which it was requested and shall not be reproduced for secondary dissemination to any other
employment or licensing agency.
3. Retention of CORI is permissible if, after making its initial employment, licensing, or
certification decision, the agency has legitimate business need for the information and there
are no statutory requirements to destroy such information. Any record information that is
retained by the applicant agency must be stored in a secure and confidential file.
4. Criminal history background checks have been completed on all individuals with access or
proximity to terminals or fax machines receiving criminal offender record information.
5. Staff with access to criminal offender record information have received training and counseling
on the handling of criminal offender record information and have signed employment statement
forms acknowledging and understanding of the criminal penalties for the misuse of criminal
offender record information (Penal Code sections 502, 11142, and 11143).
