FMCSA has launched Phase 1 of the Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP) today. The PSP is a screening tool that allows motor carriers and individual drivers to purchase drivers’ inspection and crash records contained the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). Questions and answers about PSP can be found on the PSP Website, www.psp.fmcsa.dot.gov, and are also attached.
PSP will be administered by an FMCSA contractor, National Information Consortium Technologies, LLC (NIC). Phase 1 will allow motor carriers the opportunity to visit the PSP Website and pre-register for the program by submitting their company contact information. Motor carriers will not be able to order driver information at this time. However, pre-registering for the program will expedite motor carrier access to the data once the next phase is launched.
The motor carrier will download the PSP enrollment package from the PSP Website in order to input all required information, and sign the agreement form. The motor carrier can then mail the PSP enrollment agreement to Pre-Employment Screening Program, P.O. Box 6810 , McLean , VA 22106 or return a scanned copy of the enrollment package to PSPenrollment@nicusa.com. The contractor’s customer service representatives will handle e-mails at PSPenrollment@nicusa.com, and telephone requests at 1-877-684-6832. The PSP call center is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday. To view more information on this click here PSP FAQs021710.
