Hello everyone. I recently got an offer for a contract position with the HHS. Just three weeks ago, I sent out my OF-306 and HHS-228 forms and they told me that I should be on the lookout for an email from DPSAC asking me to set up a fingerprints appointment and to complete the e-QUIP SF-85 form. They say that I have to wait about 3 more weeks till I receive an email from DPSAC and I am wondering how long does the SF-85 BI take to complete since I want to know when my tentative start date would be. Thanks!

I think it's different for everyone. There's a timelines post in the New Hire forum.

I (HHS) had a Tentative Offer on 24 July, and had my fingerprints on 8 August with a Final Offer on 10 August.

This may be quicker than most because I had a recent investigation that they could use (within two years).

Good luck and be patient.

The SF 85 form is very, very, basic and used for three types of investigations. You want to find out what type of investigation you will be going through. Tier 1, Tier 2, or Tier 4. Tier 1 and 2 are very quick unless you have something in your background that requires additional field work. Tier 4 requires field work, with a Subject interview, to be completed by a field investigator which a longer investigation.
*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.
