Department of the Interior Press Release:  BIA Assistant Secretary Washburn Announces a New Program to Assist Tribal Social Services Agencies in Placing Children in Safe Homes

The BIA-OJS Purpose Code X Program, a companion program to DOJ’s TAP, enables BIA-OJS dispatch centers to provide tribal social service agency partners with 24-hour access to name-based criminal history record information to help make sure children requiring emergency placements will be placed in safe homes.  This is the only authorized use of the BIA-OJS Purpose Code X Program. Follow-up fingerprints from those checks must be submitted to the FBI within 15 calendar days from the date the emergency name-based checks were conducted if the child remains in the placement. The submission of the fingerprints can be completed utilizing the TAP workstation with an expected response time of no more than 24 hours.
