We reported last week that the List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) database of the OIG was down between July 15, 2010 through August 4, 2010, which may have rendered some checks administered during this timeframe inaccurate.
In an effort to help alleviate the impact of the OIG’s error, Corporate Screening just completed rerunning more than 3,000 OIG LEIE checks free-of-charge for its clients that were administered during this timeframe. If any of your candidates had a record as a result of this project, you have been contacted.
Rest assured that we will continue to keep you apprised of any further updates as it pertains to the OIG LEIE database, and alert you whenever we discover any information that affects your background check information.
