I’m always reading everyone’s comments and figured I would add my own experience. I am currently waiting on DoS Secret. It’s for a job under WPPS working overseas. I have held other clearances with DoD, and my last DoD clearance expired just under three years before I submitted SF-86 for DoS clearance. Not a lot changed in that time from DoD to DoS, so my SF-86 didn’t change much from what was previously saved. Here is a rough estimate of my process so far.
DEC 2017- BIO for position submitted to DoS and SF 86 submitted to the employer.
MAR 2018- BIO approved by DoS.
9 MAY 2018- Interim is denied.
18 MAY 2018- Interview with the investigator.
21 JUNE 2018- follow up questions and informed my clearance was in the adjudication process.
17 JULY 2018- My employer checks on clearance and informed it’s still in adjudication.
10 AUG 2018- I emailed DoS and I’m told its in adjudication and there is no approximate date of completion.
I have been royally irritated by the process but it’s nice to have this site and see it could always be worse.
