Based on the release of the ISP July, 2021 processing activity

https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics

·  FOID/ CCL backlog Analysis

·  National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Illinois State Police data analysis

Some quick notes on the overall analysis:

  • For the last two months the estimated FOID renewal backlog has increased.

  • A comparison between July, 2021 and July 2020 only shows an increase in FOID (new and renewal), CCL new, and FTIP processing of only 3.2%. This may not correlate with the projected increases in productivity and staffing made since July, 2020.

  • In July, 2021, the ISP recorded a record 357,000 NICS New Permit inquiries

  • Illinois maintains its lead in NICS inquiries by submitting (2021 year to date) over 26% of all NICS inquiries.

A summary of the backlog activity is:

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.
