FBI Authorized Recipients

Holliday Investigative Services’ FBI Authorized Recipients (AR)

An Authorized Recipient (AR) is an entity, non governmental or governmental, that is authorized by federal statute or federal executive order to receive fingerprint background check results on behalf of a prospective employee to determine their suitability for employment. AR entities that are issued an ORI (Originating Agency Identifier) number are entitled to outsource their fingerprint submissions through Approved FBI Channelers for more efficient processing.

Prior to engaging in the outsourcing of fingerprint submissions, the AR is required to request and receive written permission from the FBI Compact Officer. Holliday Investigative Services can assist any AR agency with getting approved for electronic fingerprint submissions to the FBI.

Examples of AR entities include:

  • Federally Chartered or FDIC Banking Institutions • Applicants for Federal Employment
  • Native American Tribes
  •  Aviation Industry
  • Public Housing Authorities • Flight Training Schools
