Outsourcing Background Screening? Here's what to include in your RFP

Outsourcing Background Screening? Here's what to include in your RFP
April 12, 2013 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
Janice Taylor, Owner(Background Screening & Security Solutions, LLC)
As more and more companies rely on outstourcing to fill special niches within an organization, there is a greater need for reliable baseline request documentation. In the criminal pre-employment and resident screening arena, end user companies are the ultimate last stop in making sure that the process, as outsourced to any variety of operatives, is compliant on a variety of levels. There is guidance on federal, state, and local levels. There is often directive legislation based on any particular industry. And there are legislated and opinionated directives from Federal Agencies such and the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Social Security Administration, and United States Customs and Immigration Services, among others.

Putting together a Request for Proposal (RFP) for criminal pre-employment or resident background screening services is the first step in assuring that the needs of any organization are going to met, that their corporate vision will be upheld, and that the duties and responsbilities of all the members of the screening process are aware of their duties and responsbilities in the process. The RFP process is not a quick exercise, and may entail many hours of work with input from any number of departments within an organization. With such an investment in manhours, any organization should rely on a more formalized process in which to evaluate a prospective solution provider.

Having a formal RFP as a baseline, with appropriate assessment and/or scoring functionalities, allows the end user client to make the most educated decision about which prospective outsourced vendor will make the best fit for their organization's screening initiative.

Success also lies in the ability to have continuous dialogue with the outsourced organization and the administration of incremental assessments to insure a program's compliance and long term success.
