A Somali man accused of war crimes in a US court was found to be working for the TSA in Washington DC.  The firm engaged to do the background check missed the man’s open court case alleging him of war crimes. You can read the story from Fox News here.

Depth of research, level of employee training and a quality / sourcing review process are key considerations when evaluating a background check service provider.  Too often the government and companies focus on getting the lowest possible price and the result can be errors or omissions such as this one.
