    Letter No. 97-05

    Subject: Child Care Provider Investigations

    Date: August 19, 1997

    Since June 1, 1997 OPM Investigations Service has been offering an investigative product exclusively designed for child care provider positions.

    The Child Care National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (CNACI) was designed by a consortium of federal agencies which offer child care services. The scope of the CNACI includes the basic National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (NACI) and state criminal history repository (SCHR) checks for all states of residence. Other coverage elements, such as a credit search are available by request, or when certain background conditions exist. The CNACI meets the intent of the Crime Control Act of 1990, P.L. 101-647 Section 231, as well as the minimum suitability investigation requirements directed for federal employment under Executive Order 10450.

    OPM cannot assess a standard fee for these investigations, since many states charge user fees that must be passed on to the requesting agencies. Effective October 1, 1997, the basic price for the product, will be $72 plus $3 processing fee for each SCHR search conducted, and the additional user fee charged by each state, if any.
