I am very new to all the clearance process details and would like some experienced member to have a look and tell me if my timeline makes sense. This falls under the jurisdiction of DoD CAF from what I understand,l. It is a T3 Investigation. Here is the timeline:
Dec 2017: Investigation started.
Mid January 2018: Interview with an Investigator, verifying the form I filled out.
February: my alma mater and my employers were contacted for reviews.
Mid February and Mid May: Two references contacted.
When I called the hotline to ask about the status of my background checks about two weeks ago, I was told it is being “worked on” and in the later stages of the investigation. They also mentioned something about “waiting for an agency response”.
Is this an unusual timeline in any way?
What is meant by waiting back from an agency ? I know there is a criminal history check on federal level and local level. But I have no bad credit and never had ANY conflict with the law, so that should not take a lot of time to hear back from, should it ? What other agencies are normally being contacted ? Is it normal or cause for concern that it takes so long to hear back?
