Starting a Reference File
and Checking on its Contents
* When your first reference is received in the CDC, an actual file will
be automatically opened for you.
Logging onto ORCA on the CDC website and clicking on "Checking References". This will tell you the names on any references added to your file since 6/14/01.
* You may find out what is in your file (reference letters/Emergency Authorization for Employers' Reference Request Form) by:
Calling or coming in to the CDC any time during regular office hours.
* Identification must be shown in order to view your non-confidential references. Confidential references cannot be viewed.
* Be sure to notify the CDC of any name and/or address changes.
