I have been a Federal employee for about 5 years now. I am now in the process of renewing my PIV card for access to federal buildings. I have been asked so far by the badging office to complete an OF 8 form and a form 306. On the 306 form, I fully disclosed that I had been recently arrested in December 2018 and charged with a DUI. I completed a Form 85 5 years ago. I was also upfront that I was fighting the charges with a hired lawyer. I disclosed fully that this DUI issue has not been resolved for there is a pending DUI trial for this case postponed to June 2021, because of Covid. So, it has been a little over 2 years since the date of the incident for this recent DUI.
About 10 days ago, I was asked by the badging office to complete a fingerprint check. I did. I was told my PIV card will be come in about a week or two. I was wondering how long this might really take? I was also wondering the meaning of a fingerprint check. When I go online I read about an FBI check too. Is it the same thing too? My co-workers did not go through the fingerprint check for their renewal PIV. I am guessing I did because of the DUI. Can the fingerprint check result in a denial? Note: I have already disclosed the only outstanding item in my record which is the DUI.
