I am a DoD contractor and was hired on by my employer in July of 2015. I was informed the job was contingent upon receiving an interim clearance. I submitted my SF86 and was interviewed twice by an investigator in early fall of 2015. I never heard anything back and assumed everything was good to go. Today, I inquired about my clearance level and spoke by the Security Officer. I was informed that the investigation for my TS clearance had completed in 2015, yet no decisions were ever made. The security officer said they had inquired about the status of my clearance this past March and were told that they were not able to adjudicate at that time. Furthermore, the security officer said that a determination for the interim clearance had not been provided as well.
It’s been nearly two years now. What is going on? I have several co-workers who were hired in 2016 and have already been granted clearances. The security officer told me not to worry. However, after being employed for nearly two years, I would hate to find out my clearance is not going to be granted and lose my job. Is is normal to wait this long?
