US BIA deploys background check kiosks powered by Idemia

Wednesday 25 September 2019 10:30 CET | News

The US Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Anadarko Agency has deployed biometric kiosks powered by Idemia for the Tribal Access Program (TAP).

The Anadarko Agency is the first of BIA’s 28 agencies to make the TAP kiosk operational. Also, the Agency gives BIA-Office of Justice Services (BIA-OJS) law enforcement personnel access to the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS). Idemia revealed itself as the biometric technology provider for the kiosks in a Tweet.

The Native American Children’s Safety of 2016 (NACSA) mandates fingerprint-based checks against national crime databases. It also mandates tribal and state abuse and neglect directories for all adults in a home where a Tribe is considering placing a child for foster care. As such, seven tribal groups will have access to TAP kiosks at BIA Anadarko Agency. TAP kiosks are also expected to go live for the BIA-Office of Indian Services (BIA-OIS) in 2020.
