In an effort to reconcile the backlog calculated in the analysis and what the ISP calculates, and occasionally publishes as a backlog, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted to the ISP relating to the backlogs. The ISP responded noting that the total FOID backlog (open processing greater than 30 days since receipt) of 165,534 as of April, 30, 2021. In the analysis, the total calculated backlog is 168,409 as of April 30, 2021. ISP did not break the backlog between New and Renewal applications. As the difference of 2,875 is just 1.71%  of the calculated backlog, the difference can be viewed as immaterial and a validation of the backlog calculation methodology. Until the ISP can break out the backlog between new and renewal applications, due to the immaterial nature of the difference, an adjustment will not be made to the backlog in this analysis.

Is it possible the May, 2021 numbers for New Non-Fingerprint CCL vs New Fingerprint CCL are reversed?  The Average Processing Time chart seems to indicate it takes about 30 days longer to process an application if fingerprints are submitted.

 

 

During that month, I think the numbers are correct . . .

In May is was 30 days longer. In June it was 12 days shorter. I've seen a graph of those numbers somewhere. Fingerprints did take longer.

So in typical Illinois fashion, it worked exactly opposite the way it was supposed to work - fingerprinting was supposed to speed up the application processing.

My FOID renewal is somewhere near 470 days.  Not a single inquiry or email has been returned.  It's funny that they had no delay whatsoever excepting the payment immediately.  Isn't that considered FRAUD when you pay for a product and service and you don't receive?

 

So when I see these stats claiming ~200 days, all I can say is that's total BS.
