Interagency background check

When an employee changes from one agency to another, the new agency conducts an entirely new background check from scratch, having the employee fill out the exact same forms and requiring the investigator to talk to the exact same people. The check can take months (in my experience 4 months for DHS, 6 months for DOJ) during which time a candidate can find a job with a more efficient organization.
