First, I want to say thank you for everyone who contributes to answering and providing insight on clearance questions and scenarios. Really helps provide transparency and clarification.
I currently possess an active TS/SCI that was adjudicated by DoD in late 2019 (in JPAS). Investigation took 3 months tops. I supported a FBI contract shortly after receiving it, and obtained a CI Poly as well as an SCI from them (in SC). Departed shortly after due to the contract falling, so I am now back with a DoD agency under a contract. Have an SCI with them, granted in 2020 (JPAS). Recently, received an offer from a contractor to support a DoD Ft. Meade Agency in MD. They were willing to sponsor for the whole shabang with full scope poly even if I didn’t have an active TS/SCI. But since I have it, I asked if they can cross it over, especially since it is another DoD agency. They said they tried, but they still need me to complete an SF86, going back 10 years, and submit the online e-QIP? The 2019 DoD TS investigation also went back 10 years. I have the archival copy of my SF86 from my 2019 DoD TS investigation, and I literally copied everything over to the SF86 they want me to fill out but added a few additional new notes as The only thing that has changed from 2019 TS investigation till now was that I moved to a new place earlier this year, and have had worked at 2 additional places/employers since then (not 2 jobs at one time), and paid a debt in full just recently. The debt was listed on my previous investigation that was adjudicated. Only difference was that I paid it off fully now. I asked the security assistant if this is going to be a new investigation? She said that what they will do is, once the online e-QIP is filled, submitted, and initiated, an investigator or adjudicator will weigh on the new information to be adjudicated. At the same time, once the e-QIP is underway, that will prompt the agency to schedule the full scope poly at some point… that is also required for the position. My question is, is this considered a new investigation? To save time and hassle, why can’t they just accept my recent 2019 DoD TS/SCI BI for crossover since the new agency is still under the “DoD umbrella”, right?? Any input would be greatly appreciated. @Amberbunny2
