We have been given the opportunity to transition to the new DCFS background check portal starting immediately. When processing these background checks we would send them via email and now we will enter all the information electronically into their system. Once we enter this information, you will receive an email from DCFS asking for you to authorize Provider Connections to receive this information. This email will have instructions to follow on how to process this permission. Also please make sure that we have the best email for you as this will be how you receive this information from DCFS.

This portal will help us get these background checks processed quicker so make sure that grant the authorization promptly.


**If you have sent in an application that included a background check recently in the past couple weeks, please make sure that you have returned any email from DCFS.


Thank you,


The Provider Connections Staff
