I would like some clarification with what is going on with my clearance. I just changed jobs recently, both requiring a TS clearance and willing to put me through for a TS clearance.
My previous job which I left about 2 weeks ago was putting me through for a top secret clearance. I didn’t know it until I started my new job, but just before my last week there I was granted Interim TS Status.
When my new employer’s FSO went in the first day I started, they saw that I had been granted an Interim TS and they were going to put the clearance in their name/cage. A few days later however when they checked in JPAS, it said that the clearance was Opened 2017 XX XX Closed Discontinued 2017 XX XX. The date of the “Closed Discontinued” was about a week or so after my last day with my previous employer.
My FSO told me she put in an RRU to reopen the investigation and continue the investigation as it was, and that there is a 120 day threshold for them to change my status or else we have to start over. She said she will just have to wait for OPM to take action on the RRU and that she will check JPAS and let me know if there is a status update.
My job depends on me having at least an Interim TS to access what I need to do my job. I am worried now that I am going to have to start the process over, or that this is going to get very murky.
Any clarification on how this may go…or what exactly happened? Thanks.
