I was wondering if there is such a thing as a Public Trust Interim (clearance, yes I know its not an actual clearance). I received a tentative
So basically I’ve had at times Secret, Top Secret, and currently inactive secret clearances. My current job required a background investigation but just a basic one. I have no criminal past, no drug offense, no debt nor was I ever in trouble financially. Given all this, if I were to complete an SF 85p is it possible to be granted an interim Public Trust in the meantime in order to begin working while the background check occurs? Basically can they give me an EOD date, start working, while waiting for the background investigation to be completed?
Also the job announcement did not require a drug screening. Is this an indication of whether this is a moderate or high risk Public Trust Background?
