DOD TS/sci interim questions

Okay so I got a few questions.

  1. is there an interim sci? Or is it all one thing so interim ts/sci?

  2. is it interim at the same time or does one come after the other?

  3. how long does it normally take to interim?

We can’t move to our new location until interim is at least back. And to be honest we are miserable where we currently live. It’s a rush to get out!

Active duty marine corps
No crazy history
2 deployments
No foreign family
Currently hold secret
Eqip submitted 2-2-21
Fingerprints 2-5-21
Still waiting on ncis to get back with a polygraph.

Not that this is an authoritative answer, but I have not heard of anyone getting an interim SCI clearance other than uniformed service members (originally I was going to say “active duty” but I think reserve and guard might also qualify).

There is no such thing as interim SAP or SCI because SAP and SCI are not clearances. They are additional accesses tacked on to existing clearances based on need-to-know.

SAP and SCI access can only be granted once the person already has a final clearance. For SAP in particular (and I am assuming also for SCI), you can’t even be submitted for access unless you already have a final clearance.
