Background Check System Documentation: System Configuration, Deployment, and Technical Design


Detailed technical documentation has been prepared for the core background check system (BCS). This documentation falls into three categories: (1) configuration guides that are used in the requirements gathering process so that the core system can be configured to meet each States needs; (2) deployment guides that provide the information and instructions State staff need to deploy the BCS in the State's own hosting environment; and (3) technical design guides that provide information on a variety of system design topics.

This page will be updated as additional technical documents become available and as current documents are revised.

Information on Customizable User Guides is also available on this site.
