Date Certified: 2016-10-05
Specification(s) Certified Against: BackgroundCheck.xsd
Package(s): 2007-04-15 (2_5)
Use of specification: GIS’s eQuest+ web service and posting service implement the HR Open Standards Consortium’s BackgroundCheck and Background Reports with no extensions. GIS also provides flexible and secure file-based solutions that front-end the eQuest+ web service.


The typical GIS real time background check solution proceeds as follows: A client requests a background check on a candidate, and receives immediate acknowledgement with confirmation of work order creation. At the completion of a background check, the candidate’s summary results are posted to a client/partner-hosted web service and are made available to the requester. A real-time acknowledgement to GIS confirms successful delivery.

About General Information Services

GIS, established in 1966, was one of the first national background screening companies in the United States. In 1996, GIS became an independent corporation and went on to become one of the largest dedicated background screening providers in the world.


GIS is known both for its trusted client service and as an industry innovator. GIS was the first company to offer a secure, web-based screening system, the first to offer automated report grading, and the first to offer an integrated progressive screening model. This has been coupled with numerous industry and client service recognitions.
