Are public trust applications denied in steps

Hi, what I mean is that do public trust applicants get denied at the time the investigation catches a red flag that won’t allow the applicant to be approved at all or does the entire investigation have to be completed before being denied.

Also, as the investigator passes the completed investigation packet to a manager for final approval does the original investigator pass along a recommendation of approval or deny?

Hope this wasn’t too confusing.


The investigator doesn’t really have any input into the final decision. The investigator investigates and provides a report to an adjudicator. This is the person who looks at the issues and the recorded mitigating factors and makes a decision.

Ok, thank you very much.
