Action Requested
Approve and ratify required User Agreement between the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Manatee County Government to conduct criminal history record checks for pre-employment screening purposes.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Manatee County Ordinance 04-48; Section 125.5801, Florida Statutes (F.S.); Public Law 92-544, 86 Stat. 1115 and 28 C.F.R. Section 20.33.

Background Discussion
On May 4, 2005, the Manatee Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 04-48 establishing a requirement for fingerprinting and background security screening of certain applicants, employees, or appointees critical to security or public safety; making related findings; providing for severability; and providing an effective date.

On April 11, 2006, the Manatee Board of County Commissioners executed a required User Agreement between the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) enabling Manatee County to receive criminal history record information for the purposes of screening applicants to determine their suitability for employment, licensing, permitting, granting access, registration, certification, or volunteering.

Since the original User Agreement was executed in 2006, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) has revised its User Agreement and has now requested the Manatee Board of County Commissioners to execute a new User Agreement which will supersede any previously executed agreements.
