Security & Access Section - Noncriminal Justice Agency (NCJA)

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division is empowered with the authority to allow the exchange of nation fingerprint Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) for the purpose of licensing and employment, if authorized by a state statue and approved by the Attorney General of the United States.

The FBI CJIS Audit & Integrity Unit conducts a triennial audit of the State of Michigan, which includes NCJA use of CHRI. For our state to be in compliance with 42 U.S.C. Chapter 140, the Michigan State Police (MSP) must conduct audits of all the NCJA that receive fingerprint based CHRI for the purpose of employment suitability and licensing determination.

The purpose of the audit is to assess compliance with noncriminal justice use pertaining to the security, maintenance, and dissemination of CHRI. The FBI has designated the MSP as the CJIC Systems Agency (CSA) that is duly authorized to oversee the security management of all Criminal Justice Information (CJI) exchanges within its state. The CSA is responsible for setting, maintaining, enforcing, and reporting compliance to the FBI CJIS Division for such exchanges, through the audit process.

NCJA means - A governmental agency authorized by federal statue, executive order, or state statue and approved by the U.S. Attorney General to be able to receive state and federal fingerprint based CHRI, directly or indirectly from the MSP. Examples of services include, but are not limited to, employment suitability, licensing determinations, immigration and naturalization matters, and national security clearances.
