Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 20, 2013
PublicRecords.us.org is launching a massive data upgrade to their database now that the government shutdown has ended and reporting agencies are back online, the company announced yesterday.
“For the past 16 days, there were no new federal records reported to us because the people who are in charge of reporting public records were not working due to the government shutdown,” a PublicRecords.us.org spokesman said. “That doesn't mean new records were not being generated, just that there was nobody to report them.”
PubicRecords.us.org expects that federal reporting agencies will send out the backlog of data in larger chunks than their database system typically handles, he said.
“What we are going to have to do is have more IT staff on hand to handle the glut of records that should arrive over the next couple of days,” the PublicRecords.us.org spokesman said. “It will be a lot of work, but it will be important because we want our database to be as accurate and up to date as possible. The shutdown made it nearly impossible for us to update any federal records for over two weeks.”
Federal prison records, federal arrest records and convictions, and federal arrest warrants are among the records that were not available during the shutdown but that will be released by the government in the days ahead, he said.
“The government is back to work, so now PublicRecords.us.org is going to work hard to catch up with them,” he said. “They are doing their job, and we will do ours.”
PublicRecords.us.org was created to give people access to public records for background checks. It offers consumers an independent source of information from a constantly updated database.
