Any FOLs received from anyone yet?
I got in contact with the fac rep and apparently there were about 20 selections made recently. I know they've been running behind bc automation issues and what not. Sounds like they plan to select an additional 10-15 but I don't know the timeline on those. Things are rolling along; it's the govt though, so, slowly rolling.

Timeline for those who are following this “quick” process.
2/18 phone call from HR selection notification
2/23 TOL issued
3/14 Email from ASH for background investigation
4/11 I emailed ASH inquiring on status of background, they replied it was sent to OPM for processing and timeline is unknown

FOL may be contingent on verification of clearances. So still waiting.

Glad to know I definitely wasn’t getting selected 😂

You have to redo your security clearance?

We have run into this at my facility too recently.... people going from controllers to temporary supervision jobs in house... or controller to support specialist at the co-located facility have had to redo their background stuff.... I ask why and was told it was supposed to be done every time someone moved and wasn't but they are now cracking down on it... not sure how true that is but I've seen people scrambling to do it as well. Also a handful of controllers/supervisors have gotten an email saying their security clearance was expiring and they had to do it all again... weren't even changing jobs.

I think it may have to do with confidential vs secret security clearance.

Anyways. I was a late applier. I’m still on received at USA jobs. Good luck to everyone that got referred!

All of what I had to do is for public trust. I think it’s only just to verify clearance. In the TOL, it mentions having to verify both medical and security clearance and so I had to submit the latest stuff for their system called eQIP. The stuff I had submitted from when I was hired in 2009 was automatically filled in but I still had to update stuff because it asked for history from 7 years back. They also required questions about overthrowing the government and terrorism so maybe that is why they’re cracking down. They want to know if you were part of Jan 6 nonsense.

Most likely will not be on a referral list til the posting closes

My AVIATOR application status page no longer provides a “Referral List Status.” It now only states my application is among those being reviewed which makes me wonder if something changed for the worse.

Oh, I have to routinely do security checks every 5 years. Used to be every 10 years, but that changed maybe 3 or 4 years ago. I've done I think 2 updates since my hire in 2008.

Mine showed the same as of 2 weeks ago.

Did the fingerprinting and background check, got FOL beginning of April. Start date this summer.

Also, not trolling, just don't feel like DOXing myself before I start at a new place. Best of luck to everyone!
See you there. Still wondering why I haven’t got an FOL yet
