I have a SQL Server Agent job that runs every two minutes.  That job invokes a stored procedure which looks to see if there are any batches ready to be uploaded (STATUS = 'COMPLETE').  If there is, it decides which environment to use, and runs a function to build dynamic SQL, which it then executes at the end.

I suspect that running the procedures are conflicting with one another and causing unexpected results.  Especially if one of the runs takes longer than 2 minutes.  Could this be the case?
