Term           Definition
Applicant      The individual who is required to submit to a fingerprint based background check.
Agency         The entity that is responsible for licensing Applicants. Agencies must be registered with
               the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and have a valid ORI number.
Registration   To avoid processing delays Agencies have been requested by TBI to register Applicants
               at www.tbibackgrounds.com. Applicants may also Register at the Call Center. Prior to
               contacting the Call Center Applicants must obtain a valid ORI Number from their Agency.
Payment        The Agency determines who pays for the fingerprint services. If the Agency is paying for
               your fingerprint services, no payment by you is required. Otherwise, Applicants must pre-
               pay their fingerprint services at www.tnprints.com or by calling 1-800-964-7690. Money
               orders made out to Cogent Systems are also accepted at the fingerprint service sites.
ORI Number     The Originating Agency Identifier is a nine-character identifier assigned by FBI and
               designates each Agency that is allowed to submit data to TBI. You must know your ORI
               Number before attempting to register online or by phone. Contact your originating Agency,
               NOT TBI or COGENT, for your ORI Number.

Applicants requiring fingerprint background checks MUST follow the steps identified below.

     does not register you, ask for an ORI Number and register/prepay yourself by calling 800-964-7690.
     Be prepared to wait as phone lines are busy with other Applicants.
  3. Prepay your fingerprint service. The Applicant must arrange for pre-payment by visiting
     www.tnprints.com or by calling 1-800-964-7690. If your Agency is paying for your fingerprint service
     please note this at the time of registration. You may also pay with a Money Order, made payable to
     Cogent Systems, on-site the day of your fingerprinting.
  4. Wait 24 hours. Once registration and pre-payment are completed, and after waiting 24 hours for
     processing to complete, the Applicant may proceed to one of the following fingerprint service sites for
     completion of their background check. No appointment is necessary.
  5. At the fingerprint service site the Applicant must provide valid State or Federal government issued
     identification, and submit a set of fingerprints.
  6. Fingerprints will be electronically forwarded to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and all results of
     the fingerprint background check will be provided to the Agency.
