They had a provider, but for reasons not disclosed, they decided that
provider would not work for them and they are investigating other providers.

Actually according to what the BOD posted, they have already chosen a source
for the background checks and the pass/fail is rated only on whether the
person is on a Megan's List or not.  In other words, the only thing checked
is whether they have a history of child abuse or sexual assault.  They don't
check financial records, police records or anything else, only the sexual
offenders list.
