Does anybody have a current rough estimate on Bio approval times? I am currently on WPS and have submitted a Bio to another company. The Bio I submitted is for the same position I am already working. In my past experience it usually only took two weeks or so for Bio approval. Thanks for any info.

Depends on who it was sent to. Expect a few days to a week for it to even clear processing then it's up to the schedule of the DS personnel reviewing it. They could be deployed or otherwise busy and not have time to look at it right away.

Unless I'm missing something, I'm surprised you got a recruiter from another company to talk to you, if you're working for a different company under WPS already.

There are anti-poaching rules in effect.

I have no skin in the WPS game, but I would have an issue with this.

Wage-fixing (such as Dyncorp, Blackwater, and Triple Canopy setting the base wage at $500/day years ago...no idea how that one withstood scrutiny) and anti-poaching agreements are violations of anti-trust laws.

Oh please next you'll be telling me they're​ technically employees and not contractors!

I'm referring to the fact that most security guys paid as contractors would be more accurately considered employees under the IRS definition.

Gotcha and agreed. I was sure of your sarcasm, just not which way you meant it.

It's amazing what you can get away with when the USG is the client. It's not like they're going to make companies toe the line when giving them a pass makes it cost less.

It withstood scrutiny because DOS is complicate in the act.

The USG will hammer that ass if a private company violates anti-trust or other labour laws, but looks the other way when it benefits them.

Bottom line is they can get away with paying as little as the workforce is willing to bear. As long as they can keep cutting pay and get qualified candidates, the rates will continue to decline. I'm not going on a "fuck that, I'm not working for that" rant. I'm just saying that the companies will pay as little as they can for as long as they can. When they start paying deducts for not having positons filled we'll know where the bottom dollar is.

I have specific exp with this and a company is not supposed to submit a BIO for a candidate who is currently working another WPS contract. When I was submitting BIO's I had to have employment letters including resignation dates as supporting evidence with the BIO package that was submitted.

That being said, I'm surprised as well. I would call your recruiter/ processor and double check that they actually submitted your BIO to DoS, and if so, that they do understand you are still on a WPS contract.

Some positions (FIs specifically) under WPS2 you are allowed to work for multiple companies under the same clearance with just a MOU between the companies.
