What takes me 5 minutes, takes the government 5 months

On the news this morning there was a story about daycare workers with criminal records. It seems that the way daycare's are expected to do background checks is to submit the information on their new hires to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, then 5 months later the CBI provides the criminal background for that employee. This was the big reveal on the news, that the CBI was taking 5 months to return a background check. The part I thought was more revealing was that the news said if you are concerned about your daycare, get the employees name and birth date and go to the CBI website and you can find their criminal record. What takes the government 5 months to verify, can be verified in a couple of minutes on the web.
