As many of you may be aware, the Background Check Unit in the Office of Human Resources (OHR) uses a third-party vendor to facilitate our background check process. OHR acts as a “pass through” for the vendor fees so that departments do not have to process and reconcile vendor invoices individually. The pass-through vendor fees are charged back to campus hiring/appointing departments. 

Recently, the UNC System Office awarded new background check vendor contracts, resulting in new fees for each background check package effective May 5, 2021. We are pleased to announce that the vendor’s fees have decreased by $ .70-.74, depending on the package. 

Attached, you will find the new Background Check pricing schedule for your reference. This schedule can also be found on the OHR website: click here. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Karressa Overbey at (919) 962-9768 or
