I accepted a job offer 3 weeks ago, and about a week later submitted a company background questionnaire and met with the FSO to do my fingerprints for a TS.
He let me know he would submit the fingerprints and kick things off, but it would be a few weeks before I got an email asking me to fill out the SF86 form and then he would send the fingerprints off again (?). Apparently this part has been taking a while (he said it would be a few weeks).
Is this the case? Everything I’ve read makes it seem like you fill out and submit the SF86 fairly quickly… currently my status in their internal security tracking tool shows that a clearance nomination/justification has been submitted and its awaiting that step.
