I had been working for DoD position that required Public Trust past 5 years. I got a new job requiring Secret Clearance. The new company asked for my interim so I can start working. Here is my timeline. I am currently working at the new company under interim secret clearance status.
SF-86 Submitted: 09/12/2017
Interim granted: 10/06/2017
My interview took only an answer since “information was quite straightforward” as said by the investigator. I haven’t seen any inquiry on my credit report monitoring website that says it was done by OPM.
My personal references were contacted in January. One interviewed/met with the investigator and the other one wasn’t able to due to scheduling issues. He is still waiting for a call back since he is in a different city.
Would also like to mention that when I received interim, I was told that by FSO that my “interim has been reinstated”. This left me wondering!!
Any thoughts/feedback on this timeline and what the current trend has been time-wise for getting a full secret clearance would be appreciated.
