Do I need to provide DRI with the signed consent form the of the applicant allowing our company to order pre-employment screening?

No, but the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires that your applicants must express written permission for you to access any of their information, and it is necessary that you keep this signed document for review. Occasionally, we may request copies of the signed release forms for audit purposes. Frequently, our sources of information will require that we provide a copy of this written permission to them.
