When are background checks?

Right after the offer or closer to the start date?

I don't know that I ever actually had a background check. I think about 6 weeks before I started, I got sent the official employment application. It asks for your education, work experience, and whether you have any convictions/have been fired/have defaulted on any federal debts, but I don't know if they actually checked any of the info. I can't swear that they didn't, but it's not like other federal gigs where you can't start until you've been cleared.

On your first day you'll get your fingerprints taken by HR. HR then runs your fingerprints for a background check that takes 24 hours.
