        I signed a provisional also but I still have to wait for my background to get cleared. I just don’t how they pick who gets granted a provisional and who doesn’t. 19-2 regular announcement.

        David1984 I'm convinced that they drop Plinko chips like on Price is Right and if lands in the middle slot then provisional is granted, any other slot and they put you in the pile that says wait for BI to complete.

        Lastchance2017, as a veteran he will receive age waivers and can buy back time spent in the Army towards his federal retirement. When it comes to money, within a very short time he will be making close to that much, if not more.

        Cost of living in Arizona may be a bit lower than where you currently live, just basing this off a LEO 6-figure salary. So your money would go a lot farther. I'd say reach out and see if you can talk to anyone that has left the road and gone federal, or their spouses for another perspective. I haven't met a person yet that says they wish they stayed on the road compared to the federal game.

        Just my experience. I wish him and you the best!

    • So i received my final selection letter and while looking at the physical requirements for FLETC graduation I noticed that one of them was a sit and reach test and you must be able to reach 12.5 inches. I am not the most flexible person, so i wanted to ask how do they measure that exactly?

        Danieldv9 you don’t do the sit and reach test at Fletc for the FGS so don’t worry about it ..all you have to do is 1.5 miles in 15mins 220 yard dash in 45 seconds and 24 pushups in 1 min

        Calexico 19-10. Applied 7/19/19. I’m waiting on my Polygraph. I chose San Diego as my poly location. It’s been a month since my SI. I’m currently at 50%. Hopefully I get the call to schedule my poly soon.

        JESUS SANCHEZ the field portion of the BI is the next to last step in the process, you will not get there unless you pass your poly first.

    • Is everyone passing the poly nowadays?

        Unfortunately The 60 70% failing rate still stands that I know of

        V_AntCBP and dangerr101 There was some report out awhile ago from CBP that took a sample from I believe 2013 to 2016. The sampling was about the percentage of people who pass, fail, admission to something that leads to failure. The admission made up about half of the failure pool. Some people go into the polygraph and or look for a police career with things that are LISTED as a DQ factor. So the 70% failure is correct but doesnt give a fair view of what will happen if someone who is honest and takes the polygraph with nothing else to hide.

        BowMan2006 could be like you said.. I don't know... All I know is... 7 people I know took poly in the last 6 months for whatever reasons it might be, only 2 passed and continued with process. So for me that 60 70 % number is still true... I don't know if they lied or whatever issues they might have... They all said they were accused something they didn't do.

        V_AntCBP That percent is correct the sampling they did just broke it down further. If you fail because of the test or admission its still a fail for the test. I was just saying for someone who declared everything, and has nothing hiding in the closet the passing rate seems to go up a lot more. I am just trying to look at it from a positive point of view is all. The failure rate like you said is still in that ballpark of 70%.

      • Some medical paperwork is required but it seems to be too large to send in one email. Has anyone ever sent them in two separate emails and it was acceptable? Or is my last option just to mail?

          I had the same question, and I asked medical directly. Their response was “Unfortunately, we no longer accept documents by mail. If your files are large, you may split your documents apart into multiple emails. If you are sending your documents in multiple emails please let us know and label them, so we can ensure all documents are uploaded to your file.”

          If you can scan all your documents as PDF's. I ended up going to my local library and scanned all paperwork as PDF's. And sent in one email. (approx. 40 pages worth).

      • 17-11 GS 9 CBPO

        just received an email this morning that my case manager changed and to recertify my eqip before my field investigation starts. Took my poly back in March.

        Recertified my eqip already. How long before I am contacted by the background investigator or scheduled for drug test?

          I met investigator 3 weeks after I recertified eqip, took him almost a month to meet everyone and submit field portion of background. jamoranto if you are not provisional clear, drug test comes after background fully completed which I've seen so far takes 2 months to 1 year plus....

      • hey everyone,
        I'm new here. I just applied for the CPBO on September 1 for a GS-9.
        Yesterday, I received a tentative job offer and I accepted it. Now it states im selected on usajobs.
        I haven't done anything yet for the process besides the HR paperwork to confirm I accept the job. Im set to take the entrance exam next Tuesday but that was for the GS5/7 announcement. Can any one tell me what to expect? or what this means?
        Also I am currently a BOP employee as a C.O, prior worked as a police officer and I have a college degree

          @Royalty9290... As for the exam, and I'm using dated information from when I took it in 2015, should be a knowledge assessment (how well can you read and apply concepts and some math for currency conversion and summations) and then either a Spanish language test or a language learning aptitude test.

          The test were mostly fairly straight forward and easy. I took the language learning aptitude test. So you learn about a fake language (set structures, rules, and grammar syntax) and then are asked questions to see how well you can learn that language.

          After passing the tests, then you move on to the PFT1, E-QIP background paperwork, Medical Tests, Poly, Background and Drug Test.

      • Royalty9290 you will/should get a date to take the exam. With gs 9 no exam is needed its waived if u got accepted for gs-9 ignore the exam. And wait for some emails to move forward

          ok so don't even go and take the test next week for the gs5/7 since I got a job offer for the gs-9?

      • So this might be a stupid question, but does CBP pay for our transportation (airfare) to FLETC and back? and if so, what if we decide to drive there?

          You file a claim at the end of you temporary duty, Based on the FTR or applicable department/agency regs. You get 58 cents per mile I think is the 2019 GSA rate (this covers gas, wear and tear, etc...) GSA establishes distance from home port to duty location and back. Typically you will be limited to what the government would have paid for contracted rate airfare, but in my experience with DOD its cheaper for them to pay me than to fly me. Also you will probably be limited to 1 authorized travel day as that is how long air would take, any additional time would have to be a normal day off or leave time. Hotel would be out of pocket as well.

          Danieldv9, I will be able to tell you in three months :P .... I was told they will pay for travel, as per the Joint Travel Regulations, from the POE to FLETC and back. You can request the back end to be driven.

          But I'll let someone who has bee through the ringer tell us.... If not, I'll revisit when I get the final onboarding information in approximately 6 - 10 weeks.

          Lapantoja11 the government is sending you on what is considered temporary duty. They provide or reimburse you for purchasing transportation, meals, lodging and a few other entitlements that are outlined in the federal travel regulation. Each department/agency has policies that augment the regulation. But the basic travel from duty location to temporary duty location, as well as lodging and meals while at the temp location are required to be provided by the government to the employee.

          The agency will have a travel officer who will book the flight and charge it to an agency account. (Frequent travelers like me, have a government Visa card that is used instead)

          If a federal employee elects to use their own transportation instead that's ok as it's usually more advantageous to the government financially.

          For lodging, meals and incidentals, Brunswick, GA rates are using this month as example
          Lodging $128 per night
          Meals $71 per day plus $5 incidental expenses.

          Because FLETC provides lodging and meals, the government doesn't have to reimburse you for lodging and meals. But they will pay the $5 per day. As well as the mileage reimbursement for those that elect to take thier own vehicle.

          Again this is my experience with DOD, different agency/department but it's still the same travel regulation
