Yes, another Organization that already has a SWFT account can submit eFPs on your behalf. There are three available options which are detailed in the SWFT Access, Registration and Testing Procedures document available on the SWFT DCSA information website at: https://www.dcsa.mil/is/swft/.
Option 1: Service Provider Acts with Limited Permissions Submits Fingerprints on Behalf of another Organization
Any SWFT account holder can act as a service provider for one or more other Organizations if a “Multi-Site Uploader” permission is enabled for that account. This allows the service provider or any other SWFT user with the “Multi Site Uploader” permission to submit eFPs for other organizations and generate reports that identify eFPs they uploaded on behalf of other organizations.
The DCSA CET Executive Administrators grant the permission to use the “Multi-Site Uploader” permission after receiving a valid PSSAR approved by the appropriate nominating official from the service provider.
Serviced organizations must obtain at least their own SWFT Organization account before seeking services from a Service Provider. An Organization record does not expire and does not require a fingerprint scanning device to be registered or associated with it. A Serviced organization with an Organization record might also choose to maintain their own SWFT user account to track the fingerprint transactions that were submitted on their behalf by Service Providers.
Option 2: Service Provider Acts with Full Permissions to Submit Fingerprints on Behalf of another Organization
A Service Provider must have their own SWFT account established under the organization for which if provides services. This account must be associated with one or more of the serviced organization’s Org/CAGE Codes. A SWFT account under the serviced organization grants the service provider the ability to submit eFPs on their behalf. The service provider can access SWFT reports and PII data for eFPs they have uploaded on behalf of their serviced organizations.
Each request for adding an additional Org/CAGE Code to an existing SWFT account requires a separate PSSAR approved by the appropriate nominating official from the serviced organization. Serviced Organizations should maintain their own SWFT account and monitor the progress of their eFP submissions.
Option 3: Third Party Service Provider authorized to enroll (that is, take) fingerprints and produce electronic fingerprint files, or submit e-fingerprints to SWFT, or both
Third party service providers must have their own hardware/software equipment, which has been registered, tested, and approved for SWFT production under their organization. A 3rd party service provider must also be vetted to offer fingerprint services to DoD clients.
The “Fingerprint Service Providers” list, published on the SWFT DCSA informational website, lists DCSA vetted 3rd party service providers. Some service providers have offices in multiple geographical areas.
Organizations intending to offer their fingerprint services to the DoD community on the SWFT DCSA informational website should contact the SWFT Coordinator for qualification criteria and to initiate the vetting process.
