    I got this 1199 back on 6/2 and had the department submit their form by 06/06. It was accepted by the accounting department on 06/10. They got a call from the Senator's office on 6/25.

    Got our 1199 notice five or six weeks ago and made sure we're up to date on all necessary registrations, banking, etc. Still no award. Thought for sure I'd see us on the list for 6/27. Now I'm getting nervous. Anyone have insight as to why it would take so long? Should I put in a call to our local congressional rep?

    I know that feels like forever, but six weeks is not excessive. Stay tuned.

    Yes, just ensure you're matched in SAM.gov with your application and 1199A. I have 1199A requests dating back to 4/3 still not announced yet. You have to have GREAT PATIENCE like me.

    Your official award will not be till tomorrow. If you are the primary contact you will receive an email tonight from AFG officially announcing it. The awards do not get published on their website sometimes for days and they never get published ahead of the official notification letters going out. What has happened is the Congressional notification letters went out yesterday which alerts your local congressmen that your department is about to be awarded. The congressmen usually issues a press release, calls you and the news media picks up on it ahead of you. Just relax the official award will be delivered in the morning to your regular email inbox in time for you guys to enjoy a great 4th of July and celebrate with a huge Happy Dance and Fireworks display to signify same.

    Just seen the Congressional press release on our Senator web site, looks like it's going to be a great weekend.

    Did find another FR for SCBA and a pumper out of TN so definitely happy day. Just for those keeping track of getting vehicles funded the 1st application for this truck was 2007. Then 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and now. They didn't get their run counts to us in time to submit for 2012. Either way, computer denial every time, so this was the first year it beat the computer and now is getting funded.

    This is the reason a computer denial isn't so much a statement on the application but a statement of relativity compared to other applications at the same time. Truck apps were the main reason we like many others here only charge a small amount ($50 for us) for resubmitting apps for the same project. Sometimes it takes others getting funded to get out of the way so we can get ours. This department's mutual aid is also getting a tanker, 4th submission and 1st time beating the computer also. Worst thing anyone can do is not resubmit after a denial when it's a solid need.
    So do I understand correctly that if an application's still open then it beat the computer scoring?

    Never mind...just answered my own question by reading a previous thread. Looks like mass denial letters haven't started dropping yet.
