  1. Hi,

    I've been informed by my local ACIO that they are just finishing off something called Baseline Checks.

    What are these and at what stage should this have been done?

    Reading through the job spec sheet, it says a BC should have been done upon application.


  2. I'm guessing it's a form of vetting? Ie. checking your identity, etc.
    Speculating though.

  4. At what stage should this have been done?

    Surely before pledging my oath?
  5. I've just passed selection and I've heard nothing about a baseline check. Sounds like something that should be done at Wimbledon
  6. isnt it when they photocopy your passport etc when you hand in your application ?? i believe thats what it is anyway if youve sworn your oath already they need to pull their finger out!
