  • I got the call today, but like I thought it was for the BPA position. I ended up declining the offer. The person told me on the phone that they were going to let a co worker know that I want the offer as a CBPO. They also told me they don’t know when they would call with a offer but they guessed it would be probably sometime this week!

    I can’t believe I denied a federal law enforcement career. However, I know it’s going to be worth it in the end for the CBPO position. Definitely made it seem like they will be giving me a call.

    What is that they say? If you love something enough, let it go and set it free. If it was meant to be, it will come back

      vik2500 a few months later huh? Well, I hope it’s a little quicker for me than that. I applied to a regular announcement, no direct hire or VRA

      goknights , Yes, but I think it was because 1.) he was already at the acadmey for BP and 2.) it was a application for directly Hawaii and there wasn’t a big demand at the time for that area.
      I hope you get the call this week!

      goknights Disregard my comment under your last posting, I thought CBPO always calls first but in your case BP did. It'll come soon for you, best of luck.

      DP23 I appreciate the words of confidence, it makes me feel good.

      Just Incase anyone was wondering, the BPA application is longer showing on the CASS app but the CBPO application is still there

  • Anyone know if BI wanting to speak on the phone after wrap up of field investigation a good or bad thing?

      Mine called me a few days after he told me he was submitting my packet. OPR had asked him what was the reasoning of my failed polygraph in 2015, I explained/gave him details and that was the last time I heard from him. He said he would submit that info and it was up to OPR after that. They may just need some final details, my background still hasn’t cleared but i eod on the 27th, praying it clears by graduation/ clears in general

      raudy06 , yes we met at my job and he was there about 2 hours, he met with me and two co-workers that days then he went again to met with 2 more people & then called me a few days after that to clarify stuff.

  • Does anyone know what constitutes not meeting the criteria for provisional clearance. I'm still trying to figure out why one would not qualify for it. I was told I had to wait for my background to clear.

      Maybe that is what it was. Some things on my credit. Been taking care of that. I know a few things on my credit were do to my wife which was explained. I guess we will just wait and see. I also explained that I was the only source of income as well.

      Douglas, did you have to explain that to the investigator or opm? I discussed that all with the investigator and at the end he said none of that should be an issue as it e all explained and he noted that. I hope it doesn't become an issue

      I'll just sit back and wait. It is all I can do. I'm still at 63% been that way for 4 months now. None the least it is frustrating. All in all my background was pretty clean. No major issues. When I met the investigator I clarified everything and that was over 2 months ago since my file was submitted. Never been contacted again by my investigator. I did reach out to him and he said he has not been contacted for additional information. Just have to wait and see.

      Hal,

      I'd say in all likelihood one of two things happened in your case...

      A. Something associated to your initial background pinged and the agency wants to look deeper into whatever they might have found.

      B. For whatever reason(s), the agency had no need to issue you a provisional clearance...and so, they didn't.

      A bit of advice, you need to stop fixating on the minutiae. This agency will drive you bonkers if you continue to believe that every decision, every experience has a clear answer or explanation attached to it somewhere. Often, when you can see no reasons it's because they are no reasons.

      Merlin:

      I totally understand and yes there I no rhyme of reason here. You can never get a clear answer. I thank you for all the advice you give me and everyone else. Honestly without your insight I think a lot of us would be lost.

      Won't lie it is frustrating seeing I'm getting close to 15 months. This is important to me and my family and we are kind of stalemate because our current jobs are not that great and we are ready to move . Sometimes I get over anxious and just want it to be over and have that closer that I am finally done. I'm sure everything will be fine. But yes it is eating me up inside. Hopes to hearing soon. Thank you again for clarifying.

  • Anyone has issued submitting encrypted PDF college transcript for GS7? USAStaffing site would not let me submit the e-transcript I got from college because they said its encrypted. I guess its encrypted so no info could be change and they would be able to verify it easier.
    I called the issuer but they would not provide me password to unlock the transcript. When I opened the PDF file, I don't have to use password or anything so I don't know what so encrypted about it... I tried to print it and scan it back in, but it would show "PRINTED COPY" on the pages, is it ok to submit like that?
    I was only offered GS5 with 19-1 announcement because my transcript had missing info. They would not correct it and I have to reapply. I don't want to get screwed again. Thanks

  • Question for disabled vets....the additional medical forms that I have received are requesting my VA Disability rating percentage, my conditions, what the doctors determined and if service connected or not. I understand there is a form on E-benefits that matches that description. However, that form does not included my disabilities but states that I am a certain percentage and that I am receiving X amount of money per month. Do I have to go by the VA center to get exactly what they need or will the forms from E-benefits be sufficient?

No problem there, i told them what job i was doing and he wrote clear for law enforcement with a weapon

      Basically you sign and submit the Declaration for Federal Employment and from that point you sit and wait for the call with your final offer. Pending you've already completed such as SI, BI, and Drug Test.

      I'm a prior DH 18-7. I turned it down though.

  • So on Saturday it will be 2 months since i passed my polygraph but i have not been contacted by any BI yet, I do have to say i received an email to re-certify my Eqip that said it was a "pre-field investigation Eqip re-certification" and I completed it and submitted on time, so i figured after that I will be contacted shortly after that..
    I received another email to re-certify again and I completed and submitted again, and Equip was submitted again to OPR on 10/29/18.

    My question is, has anyone re-certified equip prior to BI field investigation ? and if so, how long it took for your BI to contact you? just trying to get an idea.

      Once you recertify your equip your background begins. Once an investigator gets a hold of your file they have 45 days to complete and submit.

      My investigator contacted me at the end and submitted next.

      I had to recertify my equip before I met my investigator. I think it took a week or two before I was contacted my the background investigator

      • Jfd the p2000 is not considered a full size firearm. It is compact. They are pretty easy to conceal if that is what your looking to do. I conceal a full size with no issues.

        Is it possible to ask for a polygraph in Valley Stream instead of Newark? It would be much more convenient for me if so. Or do they just give you the date and place, unchangeable?

          they usually schedule the polygraph near where you are, but you can also ask for other location

      • Just curious if anyone has the same EOD & FLETC dates as me.
        EOD: November 26th, 2018 - December 7th, 2018 @ JFK
        FLETC: December 10th, 2018 - April 19th 2019

        Update: I received my final offer email today, I'll be in class 465 @ FLETC.
