What happens during the background investigation process?

The LGCA conducts a due diligence investigation on all new applicants as well as an annual update investigation on existing suppliers and service providers. The investigation examines the honesty, integrity and financial history of the business entity and its principals. The investigation includes, but is not limited to, a credit history report, a criminal record check and a court registry search. The LGCA has the authority to conduct any investigation it deems necessary to determine suitability of an applicant. Some investigations require travel by the LGCA. The applicant must pay for any costs associated with required travel.
