Just curious if anyone else is in the same boat -- BI ongoing since Oct. 2008.

CJO for GS7 Intelligence Analyst Feb 08.
Background May-July 08.
Approved for hire Aug 08.
Still waiting.

Received two emails recently about SOS positions and I am being considered for them.

And I'm a finalist for a MAPA position.

They are working on getting all 'Approved for hires' on in some role before processing anyone new.

Interesting, thanks.  I'm not sure what "approved for hire" means.   Did you get a letter stating that your adjudication was favorable?   I haven't gotten anything, though I applied for a different position (attorney).   I see that you were "approved" in the same year of your CJO  -- hard to believe that you've been waiting two years just for a start date.

Approved for hire was an email from an HR person.  I have my Top Secret clearance and passed everything - just waiting for a unit to pick me.

I appreciate your response.  Are there so few analyst slots that there's a wait list to get "picked"?  Seems strange to me.

My understanding is that they approved too many of us for IA spots in FY 2009.  They intended originally to bring all of us on, but it ended up that all needed slots were filled by the end of FY2009 and there were still some of us left over.  However, more IAs will be needed soon and we are still on the list for that as well.  In the meantime, they are trying to get anyone on who is approved for hire in some facet.  Whether that is an open IA spot or another position (MAPA, SOS like me right now - although I'm still holding out hope for an IA opening).  But at this point, I'll take what I am officially offered - I want to get on and start ASAP.

Best of luck with the IA position. I admire your patience.
To the previous poster whose clearance took 18 months, I didn't realize that the FBI used contracting companies -- surprising.

I could be mistaken, but I think the clearances are all done by contract companies.

I don't think the government can contract out adjudications  (that's an inherently governmental function, no?) -- the investigations, yes.   Maybe I'm wrong.  Any thoughts out there?

Tortmegood,
 
The FBI does contract for investigations.  My BI had formerly been in Immigration and he told me that the FBI contacted him to conduct the investigations for me and some of my peers in my area.  Another BI went to contact a friend of mine a couple of hours from here and he had formerly been in the ATF.  When talking to a colleague of mine I had been told that he had previously gotten BI's done by former DEA, Border Patrol, and FBI.

The investigations may be done by contractors but the actual adjudiction (i.e. the decision) is done by feds as far as I know.
I am sorry, but I do not have the time to respond to private messages. I will not respond to them.

Yeah, I agree.  The feds wouldn't contract out adjudications.
