The contracts are for one year and renewal will be dependent upon established criteria. Once the application is submitted and received, OMES Central Purchasing will review the application.

Background Checks

The State of Oklahoma requires all contractors that will access, process, store or transmit state data to submit to a background check prior to performing any services. Background checks are not required for the state to review a supplier’s bid submission for an award. This is purely informational for suppliers that want to initiate background checks ahead of any agency-specific engagement should a supplier receive an award.

Types of background checks:

  • Enhanced Background Check: This background check is required when the resource will access, process, transmit or store criminal justice information when providing services to the State of Oklahoma. This background check includes completion of an online training course and a background check conducted by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, which requires fingerprinting. Please contact Robert Goad to initiate this background check at the same time as your bid submission for more information.
  • Level 2 Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation: This background check is required when the resource will access, process, transmit or store state data owned by Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation or Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control. Please contact Robert Goad to initiate this background check at the same time as your bid submission for more information. The supplier is responsible for all costs associated with this background check.
  • Criminal History Background Check: This background check is required for all resources that will access, process, store or transmit state data in connection with a release of SW 1025 that includes criminal justice information, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation data or Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control data. Please visit the OSBI website and request the following checks:

Please email the results of the check to Katie Schott

Governmental Entities

A governmental entity identifies a need for services provided under the Statewide 1025 contract.  The governmental entity will request an engagement via the governmental entity link. Once the information is submitted and received, OMES IS will review the request and contact the agency with follow-up assistance in the process. Adherence to the pilot process is required for a release against SW1025.
