DOE vs DOD process difference?


Is there any difference In terms of process or office it has to go through for the security clearance .? I am seeking DOE security clearances and just had my interview after 10 months waiting. How much longer should I anticipate the wait?


OPM does the investigations, the transmits the results to DOE for adjudication.

I have no useful time estimates for you, my investigation took ~14 months. But you can check the status at: This will only tell you when the investigation is complete, but it's something. Once the investigation is complete you can request the record from OPM. It took them ~3 weeks to send it to me after the request.


How long did your adjudication take once the ats site showed your investigation was finished? I just saw that my "Investigation results Received Date" was 4/13/17.


It looks like u are a week or so ahead of mine... now I have hope.. I submitted about a month before u did but I have my interview a week after yours. Hopefully I will see the reciception of the investigation on the website soon. Right now still empty for me


Jennynd, any news on your clearance? I received a letter that i believe was from the Adjudicator requesting further information so it looks like I am close to the end. Good luck to you!


No , nothing at all ... very frustrating.
