Contacting no investigator

I am having a back ground investigation done on me through nbib, for a back ground investigator job. My question is would it look bad to contact the investigator who is doing my back ground investigation, to see where they are at on it? I.E. the status.

Your ESI investigator would only know their portion of your case. They would not legitimately be able to tell you where your case is in the overall process.

My BI told me that I was not allowed to contact him until final determination.

You shouldn’t call them actually because it implies you are trying to control the case.

Thanks for the info. The investigation started in the middle of July, so it’s been a little over a month. Just anxiously waiting.

Patience is a virtue; especially when it comes to waiting for a clearance outcome. Remember, the investigator’s role is to go over your case papers, update or change discrepancies, and listen to your side of the story about any issue large and small (e.g., why arrested, filed for bankruptcy). Then your updated version of eqip goes before the judge, the adjudicator. We are told nothing about resolution of any cases; and that’s a good thing. Out of our scope of responsibility.

Believe me, we have enough on our plates just fixing dozens and dozens of omissions and mistakes. Not to say we don’t care you as a person or about adjudicator’s decision; just that it’s really officially none of our business on many levels.

Yup. I specifically tell people not to call me to ask for updates because I quite frankly won’t have any… doesn’t stop me from getting calls months down the road asking for updates :roll_eyes:
