BG Check Process 3


  • The candidate will receive an email from Risk Mitigation (email address: backgroundchecks@securescreening.info) with the subject “Authorization to Conduct a Background Check for Kansas State University”.
    • We suggest reaching out to alert the candidate to watch for this email and to check their SPAM.
    • Risk Mitigation will automatically send a reminder to the candidate two days after the initial request and again five days after the initial request if they do not respond to the request for authorization.
    • In the rare case where a candidate does not receive the authorization, you may share this link with them directly: https://t.secure-screening.net/y/r8Y6SkE. Please only share this if a candidate cannot access the email sent by Risk Mitigation directly.
  • You will receive a notification when the applicant has submitted their authorization for the BG check from kstatecareers@ksu.edu. Nothing further needs to be done at this time.


  • Once the BG check is complete and CLEAR – you will receive the notification below from info@riskmitigation.us to attach with the new hire paperwork for HCS, and the new employee may begin work if all other documents are in place.
    • In the case that a candidate is NOT cleared or there are further questions, Talent Acquisition will notify you directly.
