CMVP queue time is currently 5.5 months for FIPS 140-2 reports

InfoGard's current estimate for the CMVP queue time is 5.5 months (this is the time between report submission -- "Review Pending" -- to the time the Lab receives comments from the CMVP -- "Coordination").  

As of November 15, 2013, the CMVP has provided comments on all InfoGard reports submitted through May 2013 (the oldest InfoGard report that has not received CMVP comments was submitted June 10, 2013).

The CMVP focus on the report queue since returning from the US government shutdown in October has been phenomenal.  Right after the NIST side of the CMVP returned to work last month, I expected the queue to hold steady at 8 months.
