      And I was under the impression my BI doesn't exactly make the final decision, just submits his paperwork.

      Only thing I can keep doing is checking CASS right?
      The background investigation is mostly based on the luck of the draw. Some people like me have it completed in 2-3 months and others on the forum wait over a year. Some depends on how complicated your past is and if it entails one or multiple areas. And it also depends on what adjudicator you get to review everything. Some are quick and others seem to be slow and careless. Just hope your file is not "lost" in a pile of folders or behind a desk. Other than hoping and praying all you can do is wait. After 8 months you should call to make sure it is not lost, but before 8 months it's just a waiting game.

      You are correct about your background investigator who did the interview. All they do is collect and report the facts they found, and submit it for adjudication. The investigator has no say over if you pass or fail.

        • I don't mean to fan any flames that were sparked a few threads back, but there was the question of whether or not to divulge past indiscretions to a BI if there was a chance the BI wouldn't find it. I found an interesting website.

          www.securityclearances.org

          They are a law firm that specializes in helping people appeal negative decisions from adjudicators. This quote is from their homepage:

          "WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW ABOUT SECURITY CLEARANCES

          The absolute most important thing to know about security clearance cases is that “integrity” is everything. No matter how big or small the “behavior” at issue may be – the government must believe that you can be trusted to tell the truth, most significantly when to be honest could adversely impact you, your job and your position. Almost any behavior can be mitigated. Integrity once lost, however, is extremely difficult to recover."

          "...integrity is everything." If I had to chose between someone who freely admits they made a mistake and one who swept it under the rug because they felt it wouldn't be found, I would say the one who demonstrated honesty would have integrity. But maybe I don't understand the definition of integrity.

              Patience...I know it's a lot to ask for and i'm trying to listen to my own words but it all depends on the demand of the port they applied for and your application is only good for 1 year your test score is good for 3 but you have to reapply or extend your aplication before your one year is up
              These hands need your guidance!

                      Congrats on getting called. I was hoping to get called since today is day 60 in TSU. But I am not holding my breath.

                            TSU- The Scheduling Unit: Where you go when all steps in the hiring process are completed and you waiting for the call to be sent to a port.

                            TO- Tentative Offer- After you've taken you test and past your test you receive a TO. The better you're score sooner you get one.

                            NOR- Notice of results: Your test score...the letter usually contains your application id and port you selected when applying.

                            EOD- Entrance on Duty: Your first day on the job. You spend about 3 weeks at the port before being shipped to FLETC.

                            ASAP- Assistant Superintendent At Port: Go figure

                            • Thanx for the info. TPA3312 and Blessed... By the way I was just reading the first pages of this forum and saw members talking about CBP being consider a LE agency (which to me it is). The question is, Is CBP a LE agency or not?????

                                From what I understand a Custom and Border Protection Officer is a sworn-in federal law enforcement officer. They have arrest powers and the duty to enforce federal laws.
