For many university employees, including IT, our HR does a criminal 
background check on the candidate chosen for the position.  The offer 
letter is worded in such a way that:

   1. The prospective employee accepts and signs the offer letter.
   2. HR submits the information to a service for criminal background
      checks, and receives a pass/fail status.
   3. If it's a pass, the acceptance of the offer is finalized.
