I am curious of opinions with my security clearance situation. I am currently awaiting adjudication on a secret clearance to work as a contractor at USAID.
SF86 submitted June 16
Interview sometime in mid July
Investigation ended August 15
Still waiting for adjudication and was told to expect November/December for an answer
That long of an adjudication seems crazy long to me - thoughts??
I have recent recreational Marijuanna use in the last 12 months that I was completely open and honest about. It was in DC through a dispensary, so “legal” in the district. Had I known I was gonna be taking this job I never would’ve done it. Outside of that I have never been arrested, never been in trouble, never even gotten a speeding ticket. No foreign contacts or anything like that. My wife and I are expecting our first child in February and I need to be working ASAP. The BI called my job of two years to check in on me and they let me go after that - really sucks. Got a part time job right now to keep bills paid but that hardly cuts it. Anyway, I’d welcome any thoughts on what may be happening with my adjudication process even though I know every case is different.
Thanks and have a great day
