      Haven’t received the BI email but accepted my COE. Anyone else still waiting?

  • Must be a blanket email.
    I received too.

    • Hey everyone, I've been lurking this forum and reading a lot of firsthand accounts of Polys. Has anyone unsuccessfully passed a poly with another agency (CBP in the cases of most people) but still managed to go through the FAMS process? Or has it been a complete dealbreaker for people?

        NCMatt Poly doesn't factor into getting a CO though, they don't even factor that till you get into the BG/Poly stage.

        Yeah, I get that, I wouldn't think they would factor that in anyways. In my situation atleast. A failed poly with DHS they might consider that and question you about it, but depending on the circumstances they should let you through.

        Interesting. They're starting backgrounds soon, so looks like I will have to wait and see.

        Update: Was able to take poly despite an unfavorable result from another agency. It has been a little less than a year since I took my last poly.

    • Anyone know if they’ll send you an email either way like I know those that got their COs already got theirs but will they send rejection emails too?

        I’m sure a notification will go out either way. They usually do. Usually rejections go out before COLs so you’re probably fine.

        I was just wondering. I had a DHS poly and background check back in 2019 so i am not sure if that plays into it or not, because I noticed they mentioned if you had one in the last three years it could carry over.

    • Im in the same boat. I accepted my COE but have yet to hear anything on the BI.

      • You think COs will go out with this announcement closing today or will they do the whole process again?

        • Anyone check USA Jobs? When you click your application or "track this application", my '21 application isn't on there unless you click "All". Let me know if you check.

            Same with mine, I don’t think they use that system other than just transferring documents and doing the questionnaire. There’s another portal they are supposedly using for your up to date status but mine has been sitting at 9% the whole time.

            The email you got for the BI, was it just the contact info they requested or a link to the e-QIP?

            So they removed the FAM-22-002 app and kept the FAM-22-001? Weird?

            The newest is there still. The original where I have a conditional is gone.

        • Man I really hope I don’t have to start this process over, I received an email this morning stated they finally received my application for the newest announcement.

          Comment


          • Got the EQIP notification on Friday.

            Comment


            • I got the notification this morning, like midnight, as well stating my application was received for the new announcement. Looks like EQIPs are going out though so I'll be on the lookout for that. I chose different field offices the 2nd go round, I'm hoping that'll be taken into consideration

              • I received the email about my application being received for the newest announcement but I have not received an EQIP notification yet. Hopefully that comes this week!

                • Has anyone else gotten the same “application received” email multiple times. I’ve received the same email 4 times already.

                    Yeah, feels like spam now.

                • I'm confused on the posting announcements. On USAJOBS it says I applied for FAMS 21-002 and FAMS 22-002, on the candidate dashboard it says I applied for FAMS 22-001 and FAMS 22-002. The first one I applied for in October, and the second I applied for in March. Anyone have clarification on this. I didn't get a CO and I'm not sure I will but it would be nice to know what is up with the job announcements.

                    The 21-002 and 22-001 are the same, I believe there was just a typo somewhere. All of the correspondence I've received since the application has been 22-001 and that was for the application I submitted in September.

                    Okay, I’m not giving up hope I still have a chance with this latest announcement, I just don’t have the military background they are looking for.

                    I would assume that they're looking to bring on a good number of people since it has been 20 years post 9/11 (a lot of retirements), so if you didn't get an offer for the first announcement you should realistically only have to do the PTA at a field office again in a few months and be part of the next hiring group.

                    I don't have a military background, just law enforcement, so it seems they take some variety of people further into the process.

                    I have six years of LEO. But it is what it is. I’ll have my masters in National Security homeland security at the end of this year so something will open up.

                    Found the link but it gave me an error trying to create a new account, maybe they haven't finished activating everyone in the system?

                    I asked a FAM once they told me it was a regular 5-day work week but he did not really specify on the hours. Could vary depending on flights I am guessing.
