          Also do we wait on them to request our E-QIP or do we go on and fill it out and just send it to them??
          You will get an email asking you to fill out the eQIP and will have about 10 days to do so.

          The reason for the expedited timeline is that Southern California has the most applicants for the San Ysidro Port/Southwest Border and CBP is desperately trying to hire for these ports so they have put most of their hiring resources into this area. My background had nothing to do with it. I also know that CBP has received a huge increase in funding for the last two fiscal years to hire more officers and it is finally taking effect.

          I met about 4 other people at my polygraph who had similar timelines to me. We were all from So Cal and were assigned San Ysidro, so I'm not the only one.

          From here on out, I would expect similar timelines for all applicants for the SWB who live in Southern California. If you want to skip the long line and can't wait, move out here and apply for the SWB, although that would probably make your BI more difficult. You can do that and worry about transfers, swaps and reapplying later but don't count on it

            I would guess so.
            I really can't think of a reason to issue a provisional clearance outside of issuing one in the expectation of sending a person to the academy on it.

              Wow. Thanks for the info.
              I never pick unknown and private calls.
              I will from now on...
              Yes. Be aware of that. I happened to me as well.

              • Hi guys, I have a question, I received an email from the Medical Review Unit requesting some information. The email says:
                "This email contains attachments that require your action. *Please open the password protected attachments using your applicant identification number"
                I checked the email million times and I couldn't find any attachments or link... Right away I emailed them back for them to try once again. Did any of you had this problem before? Maybe was their mistake....

                  Do they leave a message so we know they called? [emoji33]

                    Do you guys think CBP would call from an unknown or private number?
                    People who have been called before can give me clue here plz. I highly doubt it, but I ask anyway lol....and the reason why I asked is because I had 3 unknown missed call back to back. First thing that came in my mind was CBP lol ah ah ah.
                    Yes they do... my poly examiner called back to back on a private number and it was after 9:00 p.m. it never dawn on me that they would call private and after working hours. So i got really annoyed after the 3rd time and answer with a crazy attitude. [emoji34] (really embarrassing) but nonetheless i apologized and we went on to talk about my polygraph.

                      I wouldn't worry about it but i would def call MHC about it. They sent me that email and attached a pregnancy form to explain how far along i was and the details. Which was crazy to me because never had i put on my app i was pregnant because i wasn't and not with child. But definitely call them.

                        I will. I missed three unknown calls, two on Wednesday and one on Thursday. I hope it wasn't them. I'll be so mad. Lol...
                        I think they would leave a message if it was them...anyways, I'm watching out.

I applied for BPA around the same time as CBPO and I've already submitted the E-Qip for BPA. I'm wondering if CBP is going to piggyback off of the BI that is done for my BPA application? Does anyone else's BI show as "Not applicable"?

                          And, before anyone asks, I don't have a current BI on record. My last BI was done in 2005 and it wasn't renewed at the 5 year mark.
                          I have not seen that, but honestly BI is a mess. The breach screwed up so many timelines. Then throw in the provisional offer and who knows what is going on anymore. I don't have my quals OR BI crossed off, but they sent me for a drug test which is supposed to be the last step (per everything I've read the past few years). Those two have been pending since March.

                          Unfortunately, I think this is going to be the new normal for a while. I'm not bashing MHC either, just a lot of wrenches thrown into the process now specifically at the BI portion.

                            Yeah. Everything was flowing pretty smoothly up until the breach, and then it seemed like everything came to a screeching halt. I haven't heard anything since they contacted me to give me my duty station.

                            I also reapplied under the 15-4 opening on 6/29/15 to get a new duty location. I haven't heard anything since, so I'm not sure if it's due to the breach or due to me re-applying. The 15-4 announcement closed 7/19/15, and I haven't been contacted about it since it closed. My old applicant ID number is still active in CASS so I'm not sure what's going on.

                                Very similar timeline as you since I originally applied during the 15-1 announcement. I then reapplied during the 15-3 announcement and still haven't heard anything.
