I was wondering if anyone is going through the same issue I am.
My clearance for my PR TIER 5 was submitted October 2019. The field investigation closed on November 2020, which means my investigation was out in the field for 13 months. However, my investigator told me my investigation part was done around March 2020, but it took 7 months for my final report to be submitted for adjudication ??? Since November 2020, my investigation has been in pre-adjudication, meaning it has not been assigned a case adjudicator yet. As of last week, they said the adjudication office cannot tell me when my investigation will be assigned a case person to review my information.
What is going on? The latest security clearance report came out (Nov 2020 I believe) that TS reinvestigations timelines are going faster, taking almost 100 days for them to complete. Adjudication is taking about a few weeks to complete. However my case happens to be the outlier here.
Is anyone going through the same issue? I guess COVID took a really big hit on manpower and resources to continue the security investigation and adjudication parts.
