    • No. I am currently a federal contractor for OPM doing BIs. As long as you disclose this information, you should be fine. Any other questions feel free to PM and I can help explain the process.

            Pretty soon it'll be CurrentCBPO. And then, FormerCBPO (since it is a "stepping stone" job).
            Congrats all.

                Locality is just a % increase in your salary, due to a higher cost of living.
                Houston has one of the highest I believe.

                Why is your BG complete 7/2/14? I thought it was sent in some time ago?

                • Ma23,
                  I took the exam on June 11 and have yet to hear back. Someone on the delphi forum posted that NOR's may be going out sometime after July 4. The timeline given is in between 4 - 6 weeks. Be patient, as we have a lot of waiting ahead of us.

                  Do what I'm doing, get your self seasons 1-5 of Border Wars and pretend that you're already there.

                  Also, how did you test on the 15th? June 13 was the cut off date.

                    I thought so too but my BI called this PM and told me that other investigators got done with my packet today and it should be sent to be adjudicated by Wednesday. That's why I changed my timeline just to be safe.
                    Do you think he would've called if theres' something wrong going on?

                      I can answer a few of the questions. His location is the southwest border at San Ysidro (SYS). The chicken at fletc is horrible! Except for the fried chicken on Tuesdays is pretty good. Obviously a CBPO is a Customs and Border Protection Officer.
                      Chicken is chicken, sometimes its dry sometimes its under cooked, but at the same time there are other varieties besides chicken. Water is horrible thought.

                        07/02/14? is that what cass says, that it will be completed on that day? don't assume just go one day at a time... patience is a virtue...

                          I don't think they would have called you. When something was up my BI met me in person. With the adjudication process I received an email when something was wrong and to clarify it. You'll be fine and I'm sure by next week will have marked green.

                            My issue is, I have yet to receive my polygraph results which I took on May 27th. Has anyone else waited that long? The examiner wouldn't tell me one way or another, only told me that I seemed to have issues with a few questions and would have to be reviewed by Quality Control. I was of course discouraged, but I though "it is what it is".

                            Anyhow, he said that I should hear something in 3-4 weeks. Tomorrow it will be a month, so I emailed my HR contact and she would only say that they do not yet have a part of my background investigation (and that they will contact me once they received a "background investigation final determination"). Has anyone else experienced anything like this? At first I just shrugged it off but the longer this goes on the more anxious I get, and the greater sense of doom I feel. It was also a Secret Service guy who tested me, I wonder if that would make it go slower? Just knowing how many on here heard from their BI within a week or two after the polygraph, is what is discouraging.

                            I wish I could just know one way or another whether I passed or failed. Making one wait this long seems cruel! LOL

                            Good luck to everyone else in the process.
                            So today I receive a certified letter (appears to be a NOPA but does not say that anywhere) asking me to respond to some "derogatory information" that came up in my background. They say I have 15 days from the letter to respond. Most of the issues are fairly minor and happened almost 20 years ago as a juvenile. I guess all I can do is give the full details, express my remorse and hope for the best.


                            My advise to anyone who has waited for what seems to be an excessive time for whatever phase, EMAIL. The two could be entirely coincidences: I had waited forever for my medical to go green, so I emailed MHC expressing my concern. They had no answer. They said the would email the Medical unit, from whom I never received a response. But despite that, magically my Medical went green after that weekend! After emailing re. the poly, the "NOPA" letter was literally sent out the same day I sent the email. So that is my experience. Phone calls tend to not get returned, but emails seem to result in some sort of action! Again it could very well be a coincidence, but maybe I am onto something!

                              No, my BI called me today and told me that. I am waiting on my CASS to go green.

                              I hope so, these last days of waiting are so very long and un-motivating.
