Background Checks of Supplier and Contractor Employees

Purchasing and Payment Processing

View policy pdf: Background Check Policy

Per BOR policy and procedure, purchases shall be reviewed to assess the risk of services provided to the institution by a supplier when the services require regular interaction with students, employees, monies, sensitive/confidential data, or regular access to secured facilities containing critical institutional-level infrastructure. In instances when UGA determines that the scope of work being performed by a supplier’s employee is such that a background check should be required, the University must seek appropriate contractual protections, including requiring the supplier to obtain appropriate background checks for all such supplier employees and indemnifying and holding harmless the Board of Regents and the University for the actions of supplier’s employees.
