MorphoTrust Adds Three States, 700,000 Applicants and $25.2 Million to Enrollment Business

MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading U.S. provider of identity solutions and services, has won new programs to provide fingerprint-based background checks for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the New Jersey Department of Public Safety, Division of State Police, and fingerprint channeling services in Nevada for the Department of Public Safety, increasing public safety through the vetting of individuals working in childcare, education, nursing, law enforcement and more. These agreements could yield up to $25.2 million in revenue over the next six years.

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security is working with MorphoTrust to establish a system for applicants that are mandated by recent legislation to obtain fingerprint-based background checks, including caregivers and applicants seeking to become adoptive or foster parents. The background check system will also include Massachusetts public and private schools, including current and prospective employees and volunteers, as well as subcontractors and laborers who perform regular work on school grounds or have regular contact with children. The program will enroll up to 245,000 applicants annually at 33 enrollment centers around the state. The one-year contract can be renewed for five additional one-year periods and could generate approximately $9.1 million in its entirety.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety civilian enrollment and channeling program includes individuals seeking employment, volunteer and licensing opportunities in the state that require a fingerprint-based background check, including real estate, gaming, housing authorities, education and insurance. The program’s goal is to enroll 60,000 individual applicants per year. The four-year contract can be renewed for two additional one-year periods and could generate nearly $700,000 over the full duration.

The program with the New Jersey Division of State Police will enroll an estimated 340,000-400,000 applicants annually. All individuals in the state who are mandated by legislation to submit to fingerprint criminal history background checks will use the services of MorphoTrust. This includes, but is not limited to, licensing, foster and adoptive parents, employment, firearms applications and volunteering. The three-year contract can be renewed with two additional one-year periods and could generate $15.4 million in revenues.

“These awards recognize MorphoTrust’s leadership as an enrollment services provider, specifically with regard to the secure capture and transmission of fingerprints to support many state and federal programs and commercial businesses,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Identity verification – ensuring individuals are who they claim to be – has never been more important, especially when it comes to taking care of our children and accessing our healthcare and public safety systems.”

Applicants for these contracts will be serviced in the company’s convenient IdentoGO® Centers. IdentoGO® Centers by MorphoTrust provide a convenient place for a growing number of identity-related services through a nationwide network of professional locations, staffed by trained enrollment agents. Spanning all 50 states and U.S. territories, the primary service offered in each center is the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.
