Signed tentative offer with DHS back in November 2017. Pending Background Investigation.....


Submitted eQip SF85 NACI Background Investigation for non-sensative position on 12/05/2017.

Last status check from hiring office says they are still seeing "Pending Background Investigation" at OPM Security Center.

My references have not been contacted yet.

Any updates on current turnaround times for those in a similar situation?

Slow processing - they are over 700000 investigations backlogged and growing.
I was told in Oct 2017 to expect 3-6 months for the Secret clearance investigation.
That slipped in Jan to 210 days....
In March I saw a post from Air Force saying the average was now 230 days...
Still waiting.
thanks 1 user thanked montanabob for this useful post.

Applied for a secret clearance with DCAA Oct 2017. Just got notified from the Security Contractor in Denver that they wanted to update my current information..... So assuming that after 11 months and 14 days it is finally moving forward...

What agency and what part of Wyoming?
*DISCLAIMER*Correctly filling out your security forms will not guarantee you a clearance in 3 months BUT be sloppy and your case will be in the field a heck of a lot longer, guaranteed.

The backlog really depends on the region.
