I have read a bit upon the clearance levels required to be a BI. It seems that often BI positions require a favorably adjudicated T5 but not an adjudicated TS.
I see contractors like CSRA with BI programs with DHS/Intel/OPM. I was wondering if I could expect to receive a TS if I applied to such a program? Honestly, a full TS would be a large benefit to the supposedly low pay and long hours so it is fairly important.
As well, I would like to know, is a favorably adjudicated T5 of any use for positions that require a TS or would one just be looked at like a person with no clearance but the ability to obtain one.
