Adjudicative Support

Uncovering the facts in a background investigations is just half of the equation. Making the right adjudicative decision based on those facts is just as important. IDS can assist clients in standardizing the adjudicative process, while allowing decisions to be made with confidence. IDS provides adjudicative support to our clients by offering a proprietary automated decision making tool based on the federal adjudicative guidelines.

Continuous Monitoring

You knew their records when you hired them. Are they staying clean? For decades, employers have turned to pre-hire background screens to identify criminal activity among prospective employees. To further protect customers and employees, IDS offers Continuous Monitoring of your workforce population, and periodic re-screening.

Monitoring provides real-time alerts on new criminal activity among a population, and eliminates the need to “wait” until the rescreen to catch new issues.

You identify the employees. We will keep an eye on national criminal record sources and notify you immediately if anything changes in their record. That way, you can follow up with them to clear up the situation before it becomes a much bigger problem. Best of all: you will have the peace of mind knowing that you’re taking the steps to protect your business and your customers.

Tri-Merge Credit Reporting

Pre-employment credit history. Instant scores and credit reports from all 3 bureaus. Single credit reports also available.
