It may have to do with the amount of money your new job is expecting you to handle. I have a feeling that you may be dealing with contractors who plunk down a huge chunk of change whenever they have to buy something.
That's something I hadn't thought of. I expect they're likely to spend even more than the most crazed customer at Now Defunct Tea Shoppe.

Back when I did security at ye olde Blue Apron's flatbed distribution center, not a single load going out was under $30k, and that's just wood, drywall, roofing, and all the crap that doesn't fit inside a box trailer well. The stuff that went in the box vans at another site, tended to be even higher. (especially with the small, fiddly bits)

That is bizarre. They make you pay for your own check? And you bring it in? I guess they figure people won't try to fake them or something...
I deal with this in my current job.
Our mentors are required to obtain a police check themselves, however, said police check has to go to the health department as well (long story short, any mentor of students in a hospital needs to be on the health department's database which saves said mentor having to take their police check and whatnot with them all the time), so most of them have one anyway and they'll pay for it themselves (usually only about $50 and we count it as being valid for three years).

The one that's more bizarre for US however, is the requirement to get a different check - this particular one clears you to work with children, however, the website where you obtain said check CLEARLY states "If you are doing <mentor work>, you do not need a check." Yet the health department still want one, go figure. (I can understand needing said check if the student was working in particular sections of the hospital, but our students don't go there)

(The only reason I can think of for said check is because that one's subject to ongoing monitoring, while the police checks themselves are not).

The students themselves have additional requirements - both of the checks mentioned above, plus if they lived in any other country for longer than 12 months, they need to get a police check for that as well.
