OAR 413-330-0970
Criminal History Records Check for SOC Contractors


The Department has determined that persons who engage in certain criminal conduct may not be qualified to be system-of-care contractors because their criminal conduct is fundamentally inconsistent with having any responsibility for the care, treatment, or supervision of children or other vulnerable persons.


SOC contractors are subject to a criminal-history-records check as described in OAR 413-330-0085 to 413-330-0105 (see Child Welfare policy “System of Care Short Form Contracts,” policy III-D.1.1.2). In the case of a non-traditional contractor, the Department will perform the check. If the SOC contractor is a business with more than one employee, the executive director, or equivalent, of the business is considered the contractor under those rules.


Once the contractor has been approved and the contract has been executed, and prior to services being performed, the contractor must verify that each employee and each volunteer who will have contact with children in the course of their duties has not been convicted of child abuse, an offense against persons, a sexual offense, child neglect, or any other offense bearing a substantial relation to the qualifications, functions, or duties of an employee or volunteer who will have contact with children.
