Just heard something interesting and thought this would be the best resource to tap for validation.
I was told this afternoon that if your clearance has lapsed long enough that it’s archived, if/when you apply for a clearance again, OPM (or whoever’s doing them these days for military contractors and assoc.) you will NOT be granted an interim.
Can anyone attest to the validity of that statement or blow holes in it? Just curious. I recently spent a year sweating bullets over this very thing (and, unfortunately, getting side-eye from my manager who is now convinced that I must have a significant character deficit as a result) and would like to be more educated about the “what ifs” for future reference.
