What is an eDO?
An eDO is a Departmental Order 556-73 process that allows the applicant to collect their results
electronically (online). The Departmental Order 566-73 allows an individual to request their criminal
history record (“rap sheet”) — or prove that a criminal record history does not exist. A departmental
order may also facilitate the expungement process.
The Criminal History Report (CHRI), is one component of an FBI Identity History Summary (IdHS) check. The
report contains information submitted to the FBI related to arrests, and in some cases, may also contain
other information such as federal employment, naturalization or military service.
*What are valid forms of identification for an FBI background check?
A current government-issued ID such as a state driver’s license or ID card, or a U.S. Passport are
commonly used as a primary ID. Examples of acceptable secondary IDs are a government issued birth or
marriage certificate, a Social Security card, a current school ID with photograph, a Certificate of
Citizenship (N-560) or a Certificate of Naturalization (N-550). For more examples, please visit our FAQ page
