Background Check Delays Expected

By ISWA/USAW, 10/17/23, 12:00PM EDT


DELAYS EXPECTED- Background Check Update

During the call on October 2nd, Background screenings is taking longer than normal. Fortunately this appears to be in the rear view mirror, as the average screening is now under 7 total/5 business days. Screenings submitted on 9/8 averaged 14.6 days for completion, which was the highest average number of days for completion. USAW will continue to monitor the average length of time for completion, and if we see a reversal of this trend, you will be notified.
