Secured Web Fingerprint Transmission
As an FBI-approved Channeler, National Credit Reporting (NCR) can assist cleared companies in scanning fingerprint cards into the required digitized format that will allow for uploading files to the Secured Web Fingerprint Transmission (SWFT) website.
Companies that have been provided security clearance by the United States Government for access to classified information are considered "cleared companies." Security clearances can be issued by different government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Justice (DOJ), and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Those companies that are referred to as "cleared companies" are listed in the Industrial Security Facilities Database. The companies submit electronic fingerprint files to the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) for National Industrial Security Program (NISP) applicants. For applicants requiring a background investigation for a personnel security clearance, the DMDC provides the SWFT website, enabling industry users to submit electronic fingerprints and demographic information.
Cleared companies will be able to outsource to National Credit Reporting the performance of collecting fingerprint cards and converting it into an electronic fingerprint file format, which meets the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) standards.
