Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program: National Crime Information Center Background Check Requirement for Retailer Authorization and Reauthorization 

The proposed rule would revise program regulations related to the authorization or reauthorization of retailers seeking to participate, or to continue participating in the program, in order to implement Recommendation 3 from the July 2013 Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit report titled, FNS: Controls for Authorizing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Retailers (# 27601-0001-31). The Recommendation requires a self-initiated National Crime Information Center (NCIC) background check as part of the application process for new retailer applicants to the program, as well as retailers seeking reauthorization in the program who have not already completed the process, as deemed necessary by Food and Nutrition Service (FNS).
