Thanks! It's for a 510 series accounting position. I am a CPA and have experience with IRS.

Still waiting on my FO, though. Really expected it yesterday. HR POC at DFAS said they were still waiting on the SF75. Hmmm.

Hello to all. First time poster here just looking for some information. I have an initial offer and have turned in all paperwork, but I have been waiting for an LQA determination and a final offer for nearly two months. I received a request from HR for my latest pay stub. When I asked why they just said that the LQA office needed it for their determination. My timeline is as follows:

Tentative Offer: 27 Dec 2017
Reply: 30 Dec 2017
All paperwork completed to include physical: 25 Jan 2018
Final Offer: ?

I received the pay stub request around 22 Feb and returned it the next day. I asked HR if there was anything else they needed, but they said everything is fine and that they are just waiting on the LQA. On top of that, with the update to USAJobs I'm having trouble getting into my account.

Does anyone have any input on how long LQA takes? People have said the process is slow, but starting to get anxious. Thanks!

Got an email from the recruiter asking for pay stubs today.Hoping the hiring process moves a little faster for me, I'm already TS cleared with DOD so that should shave off a big chunk of time.
