GSA 176 (REV. 11/2015)

PURPOSE
The Crime Control Act of 1990 – Public Law 101-647, and associated statutes require each employee of a child care center located in a Federal building or in Federal
leased space to undergo a background check. This includes every child care facility operated by the Federal government, or operated under contract with the Federal
government that hires (or contracts for hire) individuals with the provision to care for children under the age of eighteen (18). In accordance with the Crime Control Act of
1990, GSA 176 is used to collect pertinent information in order to determine an individual’s eligibility for employment to provide child care services in facilities operated by
the Federal Government.
A child care worker employee background check must be conducted on all existing and newly hired employees. The background check is 1) based on fingerprints taken by
a law enforcement officer and on other identifying information, 2) conducted through the FBI's Identification Division and through the State criminal history repositories in
each state in which the potential child care employee has been a resident or has listed in an employment application, and 3) initiated through the personnel program of the
applicable employing agency.
AUTHORIZATION AND RELEASE
I hereby authorize the U.S. General Services Administration and other authorized federal agencies to obtain any information required from the Federal government and/or
state agencies, including but not limited to, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Defense Security Service (DSS), the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM),
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), (if applicable), and from the State Criminal History Repository for each state where I have resided and worked. This
authorization is valid for one year from the date this form was signed or upon termination of my affiliation with the Federal Government, whichever is sooner.
I have been notified of any employer’s right to require a criminal history records check as a condition of employment. I understand that I may request a copy of such records
as may be available to me under the law. I understand that I have a right to challenge the accuracy and competencies of any information contained in the report. I also
understand that pursuant to the Privacy Act, the information collected will be confidential, and disclosure limited to purposes authorized under the Privacy Act - mainly to
conduct the background check.
I release any individual, including records custodians, any component of the United States Government or the individual State Criminal History Repository supplying
information, from all liability for damages that may result on account of compliance, or any attempts to comply with this authorization. This release is binding, now and in the
future, on my heirs, assigns, associates, and personal representative(s) of any nature. Copies of this authorization that show my signature are as valid as the original
release signed by me.
