        They'll tell you if you will have to come back for another one. Eventually they call you over the phone to schedule the second or third one.

          • Interesting read here.

            http://www.dhs.gov/news/2013/04/11/w...appropriations


            Some highlights...


            Supporting Economic Growth and Job Creation
            In support of the President’s executive order on travel and tourism and to continue building upon the Administration’s significant investments in border security, the FY 2014 Budget includes several proposals to invest in the men and women on the frontlines of our 329 POEs along the border and at airports and seaports across the country. Processing the more than 350 million travelers annually provides nearly $150 billion in economic stimulus, yet the fees that support these operations have not been adjusted in many cases for more than a decade. As the complexity of our operations continues to expand, the gap between fee collections and the operations they support is growing, and the number of workforce hours fees support decreases each year. Accordingly, the Budget supports 3,477 new CBPOs to reduce growing wait times at our POEs and increase seizures of illegal items (guns, drugs, currency, and counterfeit goods). This includes appropriated funding for 1,600 additional CBPOs and, with congressional approval, 1,877 new CBPOs through adjustments in immigration and customs inspections user fees to recover more of the costs associated with providing services. These fee proposals will also help address the staffing gap outlined in CBP’s Resource Optimization at Ports of Entry, FY 2013 Report to Congress, submitted with the President’s Budget. In addition, CBP and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are evaluating financial models to achieve full cost recovery for agricultural inspectional services provided by CBP.




            Securing and Managing Our Borders
            The Budget continues the Administration’s robust border security efforts, while facilitating legitimate travel and trade. It sustains historic deployments of personnel along U.S. borders as well as the continued utilization of proven, effective surveillance technology along the highest-trafficked areas of the southwest border to continue achieving record levels of apprehensions and seizures. In support of the President’s executive order on travel and tourism, the Budget funds a record number of CBPOs through appropriated funds and proposed increases to user fee rates, to expedite travel and trade while reducing wait times at more than 300 POEs along the border and at airports and seaports across the country. Increased POE staffing of 1,600 CBPOs funded through appropriations and 1,877 CBPOs funded through user fee increases will have a direct impact on the economy. On the basis of a study conducted by the National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events - University of Southern California, initial estimates indicate that for every 1,000 CBPOs added, the United States can anticipate a $2 billion increase in gross domestic product. That research indicates that these additional CBPOs may result in approximately 110,000 more jobs and a potential increase of $6.95 billion in gross domestic product.

            To secure the Nation’s maritime borders and 3.4 million nautical square miles of maritime territory, the Budget invests in recapitalization of USCG assets and provides operational funding for new assets coming on line, including National Security Cutters (NSCs), Fast Response Cutters (FRCs), Response Boats-Medium, Maritime Patrol Aircraft, and Command and Control systems.

            Law Enforcement Officers: The Budget supports 21,370 BPAs and a record 25,252 CBPOs at POEs who work with federal, state, and local law enforcement to target illicit networks trafficking in people, drugs, illegal weapons, and money and to expedite legal travel and trade. This includes funds from proposed increases to inspection user fees.



            Emphasis mine.

            Looks like a significant amount of new hiring soon.

            Mer.

                      • My poly was scheduled today, I will be taking it 4/30. Happy that the process is finally picking back up. Also got news yesterday that another agency I applied for has finished my backgrounds and I'll be taking the CVSA with them soon. Never thought I would possibly have the chance to choose between two different positions. Hopefully everyone else waiting for news will receive it soon!

                            I really do think that the academy's will be running continuously through the summer(every two weeks or so), especially since it seems that there may be a whole lot of hiring this next year, and since its funded for it. As for official notice, every time Ive asked the MHC people about academy's after the one they were filling Ive only gotten pretty much the "still finalized answer" or when there is an academy we will call you. I bet you get a call this next week.

                              Thanks. I hope we both do.

                              When I asked them how they determined the order the make the calls out, they replied the TSL date is one of the key things they factor in, as well as the geo preference and where they have vacancies, obviously. That actually seems to hold true. From what I've seen, the calls that have been given to SWB applicants have been to those who have been in TSL longer than us.
