Changing Jobs during a PR - article on

Interesting article on about changing jobs when you’re in the middle of a Periodic Reinvestigation

What Happens if You Change Jobs in the Middle of a Security Clearance Investigation?

This article not only addresses the topic but also goes into some of the policy behind the security clearance process. Written by Merton Miller who knows a thing or two about such matters.

My question is, does the extension of the PR requirement from five to six years only apply to contractors? The only exception I saw had to do with SAP access. Anyway many government agencies are somewhat lax about getting their PR’s submitted (or so it seems).

The article is worth the read, if a bit wonky at times.
