          Same thing here, Miami, FL wasn't critical, VT was, then later ME was. By the time everything cleared for me in CASS all the posts at the POE in ME had been filled up. Did 2nd BI recently, still waiting for outcome.

                  The answers you provide in the e-qip are the questions that are asked during your background investigation among other things, in addition to the 8 pages you are asked to fill out by hand and either upload via SFTP or fax in. The fingerprint cards are pretty much the only thing they want analog (old school, ink on paper) and mailed in.

                  There's no check mark in CASS specifically for the eqip. After you meet with the investigator, and they review your eqip answers and the other forms (Lautenberg, etc), and your neighbors/references are questioned, and the investigator submits their report, that is when everything is released to Internal Affairs who then gives it a once over and approves or rejects any part of it. Am I about right on this Merlin or Yoda?

                  Now.. The other thing to keep in mind.. Lately something has been wrong with eqip. It saved my answers from the first time I filled it out, and when I went back this time (a few months ago) to 'update' my answers, some of the things I had previously filled out were blank and had to be filled out again (school, employment history, birth/death of immediate relatives, etc). When the investigator met me, he showed me my eqip answers and I know with 100% certainty that I did nbot list my parents as deceased, yet eqip recorded my answers as them being deceased. My employment history had also been garbled up somewhere and I needed to clarify that during the sit down.

                  As far as the forms go, I uploaded all 8 via SFTP (prior to the 2nd BI), triple checked everything that the scanner saved my scans as separate PDFs, that I gave each file a name DHS would recognize, uploaded all of them, yet during the investigation, the investigator told me 3 of them printed out as blank pages (ie just the form with no answers filled in). I told him I had filled out everything and he said he'll need to check with another department to see what happened. Eventually my scans/uploads turned up and the investigator brought them by for me to review.

                  So, moral of the story, the recruiting process isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination and therefore don't assume anything, ever. Like Malcolm X told Aldus Huxley, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." If you don't hear anything after a few months about a particular part of the process, send MHC an email. Some people are lucky and don't have any hiccups, some people take forever to clear everything. And just because you clear once, that doesn't mean the process is over. Even if you're in FLETC (or back at your POE after FLETC), it still isn't over and you'll get a call to be scheduled for another BI, regardless of how long ago or how recently you cleared your first BI.
                  Once you're done with FLETC and your second BI, you can relax for 5 years. After 5 years, expect another BI.

                  Thanks man! I appreciate the input!! Just confusing because eqip does say they have not received paperwork to begin investigation. Ill just send an email. But all really good stuff to know.

                          Be ready, when they called me they wanted to schedule me within like 1-2 days of that call. I thought I remembered other people getting a week's notice or so, luckily my schedule allowed for it.

                            Yes on the pre-employment papers it says you will have to report within 48 hours to be tested. so there will not be much notice.
