Background Check Requests

(Single Contact Repository - SING)

The Single Contact Repository (SING) provides authorized organizations online access to Iowa Criminal History and Sex Offender Registry information held by the Department of Public Safety/Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), Department of Human Services’ (DHS) Central Abuse Registry for Child Abuse (CA) and Dependent Adult Abuse (DAA), as well as Professional License information. 


SING expedites the process of checking backgrounds of employees and volunteers as required by regulations and policies.  Authorized SING Users (User) will enter the required search criteria and select which databases are being requested. The fee per request is either deducted from an already established pre-paid Billing Account or the User will provide a credit card number as payment for each SING request.
