Fingerprinting Guidance for Remote Based Services
  • Department of Developmental Services


Employees, vendors, contractors and volunteers providing services remotely to individuals served or supported by DDS are subject to 115 CMR 12.00 and are required to complete the DDS fingerprint-based background check process, as there is the potential for unsupervised contact with DDS individuals, including, but not limited to, unsupervised contact through remote or virtual services.
