      cstephensiv I am having the same issue since Friday. I cannot log in with the same message.

  • Good morning all,
    I received a NOPA a few days ago and I am about writing the response to it. I just wanted to know if I only have to write to explain what happened or do I have to submit more documents. I have already sent an email to the guy who sent me the NOPA but I haven't had a response from him. I mean, I understand if I have to type something up and to include police reports as well as court minutes. But there are stuff that they are asking about when I was in the military that I had access to but now that I am out of the military, I have no more access to it. do I just explain that on the written request or what do I do? some of them are also pretty vague as well. if anyone can help me with this then please comment bellow or shoot me a message... thanks you have a great day guys and stay safe!

      for my NOPA I explained every situation from the beginning to end so they had a better picture of what happened from start to finish as well as my actions that lead up to the situation. then I answered every question I was given with as much detail as I could remember. Each NOPA is different in its own way so I wish I could say I could help, but I can't unless I knew the issue or questions they asked. You should be keeping the questions to yourself tho at least that would be my thought.

      The BP applicant forum over on Delphi Forums has numerous Agents/applicants with firsthand NOPA experience and board resources on how to overcome a NOPA. Check there for advice, NOPA templates and the like.

  • I worked as an adjudicator for several years. You will want to answer every question with as much detail as possible. The adjudicator will more than likely already have copies of the documents that you say you dont have access to. But you will want to make every attempt that you can to get them. Just saying you cant get them isnt enough. Tell them every Avenue u attempted. Explain circumstances surrounding the issue of concern. Being forthcoming and owning your sitch will go a long way. Answer all questions and show ur clear path of avoiding a repeat offense. When you finish writing your response read it to see if anyone outside of the sitch would have questions about what you provided. If you think someone would have questions, go back and write in the information that would make the question go away. if you leave room for a question, they will ask it, and u will be further delayed.

        • Today was EOD for me. I went in long enough to get my HR paperwork mostly done, got a new PIV card, and was put on payroll. Tomorrow we have plans of starting online learning courses and just playing it day by day. I am EODing at my local port vs my actual port, but as long as I can work and learn I'm ok with it. To those starting up this or the next few weeks just keep your chin up, and of course keep your paperwork in order to make life easy on your ports mission support since things are already hectic.

            thelonelybum step 1. Lets be real here i'm making way more then I was at TSA so there is no reason to put me at a higher step witinin the grade I got.

            TsFost just curious because I make more than GS 9 and they'd need to put me on step 3 at least to match what I'm getting at TSA with locality

            thelonelybum ok well good luck on that. my GS9 step one is already going to be 12k+ more a year base pay alone over my entire gross for last year with TSA. YMMV and always try to not leave money on the table. They will decide if they want to raise your step or not once they look at your fed employment documents. Your final offer letter will have your final grade and step on it.

        • Hey Everyone

          About two weeks ago I received an email that they are adjudicating my background investigation and need additional info. They also requested that in order to expedite the process to reply via email instead of USPS mail in order to ask for the additional info. I responded immediately but haven't received a response on what info they need in two weeks. Why ask for a immediate response and when I do I still dont receive a response in two weeks. Has anyone had this issue?

            After getting a NOPA how long can it delay your process if you have nothing else other than a drug test?

            Chicago here. Applied 12/2019 for 20-3. Finished everything up within 2 months, aside from the drug/poly as of now. This is where I wait lol. How was the process at O’Hare for you? That’s where I plan on going since I live within 30 minutes of it.

            dlugan, hows O’Hare dealing with all this going on? I’m planning on there once this is all complete. 50% in CASS, had my interview there in February and that’s the last step I’ve completed (aside from EQUIP, Medical, Physical, etc.)

            Just a heads up, drug tests results are on a noticable delay. I took mine 1st week of March but no result has been posted. Hoooooooooowwweverrrrrr, I received a call last week for a location and class date. September for FLETC. It's been over 2 years, I suppose they felt sorry for me. I cant even get excited. Just working out and quaranteaming with my family.

        • 19-5, VRA here checking in. Finally cleared medical, 50% now. Anyone know best practice to update my address as I've moved since I've applied?

            Wait for them to contact you, they will ask for major life updates, employer, address etc.

            mine took 15+ months before the virus. I applied Dec 2017 and I got my EOD info March 2020 JL85

        • How’s everyone doing, I am fairly new to this forum but have been keeping up with everyone’s much needed information. I am 20-4 and just received my medical clearance, now the long wait for the polygraph begins, just curious if anyone on here has applied to a southern border?

            Theone720 I took my initial medical exam 2/18/20 and was requested to for additional stuff on something later that week and they gave me a month to do it. Turned in my follow up stuff on 3/14/20 and was cleared on 3/31/20. My CBP app is green lighted but I haven’t received my email from actual CBP but my medical status is clear now. Where did you apply brotha?

            StevenMal Sorry to hear brother, if it helps, maybe the southern border process move a little "faster" than others? Not sure just kinda seems like it.

            I applied for Nogales as well (20-5; waiting on poly). I was told during my SI (pre Covid-19) that they were hiring faster than he had ever seen before for the southern border and getting people hired on and sent to FLETC within 6-8 months. Bad timing for a global pandemic.
