    Question for you guys who already did this step: Do you have to send back your fingerprint cards at the same time as you send back the rest of the info? I'm a little nervous about being able to get that done in the time allotted--my local PD is a bit slow.
    Congrats on becoming a real applicant and welcome to the waiting game I have Mac so the attachments did not open even though everything is up to date on it. I went to the library at school and printed all the attachments. It is important that you print all of them just like how that email told you coz I think you have to sign couple of them.

    As for fingerprints, you can send them anytime, and if you finish them earlier then go ahead and send them. The police station at my town do fingerprints twice a week, I set up an apt with them and went 3 days after I got them, got them done and mailed them back right away with registered mail so I make sure they arrive and so I can focus on the actual eqip.

    Nice. Let me ask you this? How long was your wait between your poly and your BI meeting?

        I'm a little nervous--I can't get the first attachment in the e-mail to load.
        Are the forms that I need to fill out on the E-Qip website or are they in that attachment? I am able to see the second one where it's the "instructions."

        I'm freaking out a little now because they gave me a deadline of 6/27 and I definitely do not want to forget anything and/or miss it.
        Hey Alex. There are several documents you need to print sign and send back...but the main background document is filled out online. That's government form SF-86. The log on should be through the OPM website. You might be able to Google it and create an account. I know that once you are in the OPM system with an open background case you are able to log in.

            My BI called me a week after my poly and he met me a week after but people were contacted by BIs right away as well before he met with me. You are a week ahead of me. Good luck to us all and I hope we stay sane till we get the call :P

              That's not necessarily true. Don't get discouraged! Everyone's process is completely different because there's so many different variables at play. Your geo could just be a little overwhelmed at the moment.

              • Hi Guys,

                I'm new to this forum. It looks like there are many applicants moving parallel to each other in the hiring process. I had my polygraph last week and the agent told me that I've passed the test but it'll be reviewed by quality control before they make any decision. I guess am also in the waiting game now. I believe I would be contacted by BI within the next couple of weeks but prior to the meeting BIs will check my references? Here's my timeline so far.

                  Thank you so much for your clarification! I finally got the documents to load and print last night (had to use Internet Explorer). I'll be working on those this weekend. They don't seem too extensive. Just waiting for my fingerprint cards to arrive in the mail. I tried the OPM site last night but it didn't take my information. I'll try later today to see if it finally processed and I can log in. Again, thank you so much for your help.

                  Jade, did you have a deadline to return the fingerprints by? My instructions say they have to be mailed by the same date as the background forms. You mail those separately from the other forms, correct? I just don't want to screw up this part. I've come so far.

                  • Hey guys, new to the forum. I am in the waiting game as well. I was told yesterday that by my BI that my packet is completed and wished me luck.

                    I currently am a federal contractor for OPM, doing background investigations. I have seen a lot of posts asking questions or concerns about the BI and what may or may not be disqualifing. If anyone wants to PM me I would be more than happy to answer questions. As an investigator, we get a lot of questions concerning timelines and such. I know this process can take awhile, and I know a little assurance can be nice. Best of luck to all!

                      I don't think the whole 18 day thing is true, I met with my investigator May 7th.
                      Then again on June 4th. Said he would have everything in June 5th. Nearly 30 days.
                      That doesn't count the investigator in Michigan, who spoke to my friends May 1st and 2nd.

                              Future, the reason I said that coz I asked my BI and he told me 18 days if not expedited. I actually counted the days and it was exactly 18 days between the day they got my case and submitting it.

                              Alex, I was instructed to send the fingerprints within the timeline I was given which was 10 days. The reason I did them asap is so I can make sure I got done with them and sent them so I can focus on the actual eqip. So as long as you send them before your designated day you should be fine.
