I called the OPM and was told that my investigation was closed on 5/28/19 and sent to adjudication. I believe I am being investigated for Secret clearance. My question, is there a way to track the status of the adjudication process like the background investigation process i.e. to find out to which DoD branch the report was sent to for adjudication and a contact number to find out status.
I am asking because I accepted a job offer with a defense contractor and that original position was filled because my clearance took too long. I was told by the recruiter that if the clearance comes I will need to apply for any new positions open at that time for a new offer. It seems that the security officer at the contractor doesn’t want to do much and thus I am doing all the leg work to get my clearance approved. So, need to know if and when I am granted clearance so that I can apply for a new position. My timeline below
- 4/18 submitted SF86
- 11/18 contacted hiring manager about status and was told no updates, mind you I was contacting security officer regularly between now and when form was submitted, but a few days later received a call from an investigator asking basic background info and was asked if I was willing to do an interview, I said yes and was told another investigator would contact back soon to schedule it.
-2/19 Was not contacted till now about scheduling interview so I contacted the original investigator (believe he might have been a supervisor, just speculating) and pleaded for some status update. Within a day was contacted by another investigator to schedule interview.
-3/19 Interview occurred by telecom and was told only one issue was found, which was my college degree was not confirmed by the university I got it from. Was told it was not an issue and should be approved for interim clearance. Finally, investigation was closed on 5/28/19.
Essentially, I had to nudge my investigation along. I am a naturalized US citizen who was previously an Indian citizen who went to university in the US.
Any information people on this forum can provide would be helpful.
