                Not possible. If you had GS time at a higher pay grade, then sure.

                However, after 6 months you should get promoted.

                  I completed and passed my vbt/si and poly last week. One of the people there said I was being put on a provisional clearance for my background assuming my medical checks out. She made it seem like I would be getting an EOD very VERY soon.

                    Promotions follow after 52 weeks, not 6 months.

                        That site is wrong.

                        Pay is GS pay, not GL. No accelerated promotions after 6.5 months. Border Patrol used to function that way but OFO never has. "Used to" being the key words for Border Patrol. ..as they stopped their accelerated promotions awhile back.

                        The initial uniform allowance is $1500. After the first year, it drops to $800.

                          What Merlin is saying is correct. I was a PA when they were giving grade increase after six months out of the academy. This is no longer. OFO is definitely not doing this as I just switched over early last year and know this first hand. With regards to that grade 9 you see there, you can drop that as well for the most part when it comes to OFO.

                              Yah, I know it's there but it won't be easy to get brought on as a 9. They matched me to a 9 and was the best I could get. I wasn't going to go around and around about this and took it since I'm not cash strapped. Some of my buddies that were laterals were lucky enough to get 11 step something. I got on through the open announcement so didn't have such luck.

                              • Have to resubmit my e-QIP they need some more info but I forgot my password and have locked my e-QIP account. It's saying I need to contact my agency representative to have my login account unlocked or credentials reset. Anyone know who I need to contact? I only have until 1-17-16 to resubmit it.
