I submitted a paper based SF86 in Nov 2016 after a conditional job offer through a gov contractor. After submission, there was some back and forth questions and clarifications on some dates and issues on the form- only through emails with my point of contact. April 9th I had a 6.5 hour poly followed by an interview with an investigator that lasted approximately 3 hours. May 10, my supervisor was interviewed by a local investigator in a different state.

I called OPM June 5th, they confirmed they are not conducting an investigation on me and I need to inquire about the status somewhere else- with a different agency.

What was really interesting, through this process, I had not been fingerprinted. But I was fingerprinted for a different agency/job in 2015.

Where do I stand in this process? Thank you.

Not all clearances go through OPM. It all depends on the Agency you work for. I would recommend contacting your POC with regards to your status.
That's all I got to say about that.

After interviewing my manager separately in NC, a background investigator called HR and asked to review my personal records. He stated to her this this being "expedited"

He went with her today (after approximately a month from interviewing my manager).

I wonder if I am close to be adjudicated?

Thank you.

It also seems none of my references were contacted.

NBIB has not accepted paper SF86 submissions in years.
If you submitted a paper questionnaire - you are not being investigated by OPM/NBIB.
*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.
