Hey All, how are you?
I have a somewhat confusing/convoluted question of sorts.
I have a TS/SCI and from an SSBI done in 2013 so i am still under my 6yr time-frame.
I have been working on an Army contract most recently but just accepted “transfer” to a job at CYBERCOM at Ft. Meade. I say “transfer” because I actually had to leave my contract to accept this job because the Army position was a deployed one and i would have just been taking up a billit.
Anyway, the job at Cyber is actually a DIA position but since it is an NSA facility, i need “NSA Suitability”. I have an NSA poly but it was never adjudicated since i took another position but it is still in JPAS.
I was told that i just need DIA to process my clearance (crossover i guess) and can then start at a DIA facility until NSA clears me. I do not need a FS for this position and all i need from NSA is access to location.
Also, DIA is going to run my PR since i am due but i was told that i should still be able to start with my current investigation. I am starting to worry, because my current clearance is up in August and like is said , i am actually not working at a customer regardless of this “transfer” phrasing by my company.
I have had a TS/SCI since 2004 with various agencies and no security issues.
My questions are : Do these processes like mine usually take more than 3 months to process.
Is it correct that i can still start with my old clearance (SSBI) or do i have to wait on the new PR to complete? What happens if i still have not started and my current clearance goes "out of scope" as i'm being process?
This process for CYBERCOM has been the most complicated i’ve been thru.
Thanks in advance…
