Comprehensive Package

The Comprehensive Package includes a news and social media analysis. The news media investigation provides a better understanding of a candidate’s leadership style, public relations skills and priorities. The news media investigation draws upon over 28,000 specialized publications and 900 newswires in 200 countries and includes 30 years of credible archived information. Special focus is given to publications in communities where the candidate has lived or worked. The social media review includes a review of text and images on sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn, personal blogs and industry websites. The analysis provides a summary of candidate generated activity with highlights of negative alerts.

Basic Package

The Basic package was designed in response to requests for a simpler cabinet or principal position background check; it does not include the news and social media analysis.
