SHP - 984 (MACHS Applicant Fingerprint Services Form) Instructions
The Applicant Fingerprint Services Form is a mechanism for authorized entities requesting state and / or federal fingerprint based background checks through the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS) to provide the applicant with the appropriate information to ensure they register correctly.
The Applicant Fingerprint Services Form should be given to your registrants prior to registering and scheduling their fingerprint based background check. The form may be printed off and completed or is available as a fillable PDF as well.
The following fields should be completed by the authorized agency: MACHS Registration Number, Agency Name, Agency ORI, and Agency OCA (if applicable). The applicant's name should be completed by the authorized agency when registering the applicant through MACHS. The form may also be completed by the applicant as long as the required agency information is provided.
The TCN (Transaction Control Number) should be entered either by the authorized agency or the applicant after registering through MACHS. The TCN will be needed when paying online and at the time of the fingerprinting with the state's fingerprint services vendor.
When registering through MACHS make sure all of the information on the Applicant Fingerprint Services Form matches the MACHS registration information. Specifically, the registrant should make sure the MACHS registration number, Agency Name, Agency ORI, and Agency OCA are correct when registering on MACHS or at the time of fingerprinting. If at any time throughout the fingerprint process (MACHS registration, payment, or fingerprint process) the information does not match the Applicant Fingerprint Services Form at the time of registering do not complete the process. All typographical errors should be fixed prior to continuing the fingerprinting process.
