The Unitarian Universalist Association, working in cooperation with Oxford Document Management Company, has strived to make the implementation of the "Responsible Staffing" Guidelines as simple as possible.

For over 25 years ODM has worked exclusively with religious organizations seeking independent and comprehensive background checks of clergy, prospective clergy, church staff, and volunteers. This work is our “ministry” and our objective is to provide you with background information on your candidates that is highly reliable, timely, and modest in cost. And although the work we do is rather complicated, we strive to keep things as simple as possible for you.

At ODM, we differ from the competition in several key areas:

  • All of our public record searches are ordered by our experienced staff based on information gathered both from the candidate and a social security trace. To rely solely on one or the other will most likely result in overlooking searches in key jurisdictions.
  • All of our public record searches are performed real-time and in-person by our network of experienced court researchers. With the exception of the supplemental Enhanced Nationwide Criminal Search, we do not rely on potentially outdated or incomplete databases (those so called “instant reports” promoted by other vendors).
  • We offer free unlimited consultations, and have no minimum usage requirements. Call us at any time with your questions: 1-800-801-9114
  • We strive for the highest level of personal attention and customer service.

We are sincerely honored to work in cooperation with your denominational leadership to develop an online registration process that has been customized for UUA organizations. To start this process, click here.
