Federal Bureau of Investigation; Records Management Division; National Name Check Program Section; Revised User Fee
This notice establishes a revised user fee for federal agencies requesting name-based, non-criminal justice background checks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Central Records System through the National Name Check Program (NNCP). The total resource costs associated with providing these name check services have been calculated to ensure full reimbursement to the FBI. The FBI is also authorized to charge an additional amount to defray expenses required to update and improve the NNCP's technological infrastructure, which supports the automation of processes involving name-based background checks. This notice explains the methodology used to calculate revised fees and also provides the new fee schedule. The NNCP is replacing its current multiple fee structure with a single user fee.
