I’m a contractor waiting on my DoS secret clearance. I’ve held DoD clearance at the secret, top-secret and top secret with SCI and was a top-secret courier. This is my first DoS clearance. I’m now at 200 days and nothing. My company FSO tells me he can not look up anything. I know there is a terrible backlog, I’ve seen the 1st quarter FY18 timeline but these all speak of DoD clearances. Is my timeline about right?

from Sept to Dec all background checks completed
December attended DoS WPS training course
28 January 18 interview complete
