Applicant Background Check Status Inquiries
Due to the on-going fiscal crisis and hiring restrictions within State government, the California DOJ no
longer has the resources to take phone calls or process follow-up inquiries from regulatory entities or
individuals who have submitted a criminal offender record information search request through the DOJ or
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Please utilize or advise your clients to use the automated Integrated Voice Response System (IVRS) at
(916) 227-4557 to determine the status of the background check if the requesting agency does not have
results within seven days and digital Live Scan fingerprints were submitted.
You will need the following information:
(1) the applicant's date of birth; and
(2) the 10-digit Automated Transaction Identifier (ATI) number that appears at the bottom of the DOJ
form (BCII 8016) requesting Live Scan fingerprint background checks. The ATI number always appears in
the following sequence: 1 LETTER; 3 NUMBERS; 3 LETTERS and 3 NUMBERS.
No Longer Interested (NLI) Form
It is your responsibility to immediately notify the DOJ when an applicant’s employment has been terminated,
if they were not hired or when an applicant or volunteer is not actually retained to the position for which they
applied. Included in this packet is the NLI form you will complete and return to the DOJ for these purposes.
