FBI Taps US Investigations Services for Fingerprint, Background Contract
The Federal Bureau of Investigation tapped US Investigations Services with a multiple-year contract to resume channeling fingerprints to the federal agency, according to a press release.
Under the ownership umbrella of Altegrity, the US Investigations Service is tasked with providing fingerprints to the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System. The firm then supplies national criminal history data to the FBI.
"USIS is one of the few companies in the nation to be recognized by the FBI as an approved channeling agent," said president and chief executive officer Peter Masanotti. "By expediting fingerprint submission to the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services Division, we assist the agency with information that it needs for national criminal history record checks."
The contract could lead to opportunities for employees who are equipped with security clearance and passed lifestyle polygraph examinations.
The firm holds more than 100 contracts and is recognized as the federal government's main provider of background investigation data. More than 6,000 employees work for the organization throughout 50 states and internationally. The company also orchestrates construction surveillance services.
