I applied for a DoD internship a few years ago and did not get the internship.
I filled out SF-85 along with the application which were attached via e-mail and sent to the agency.
I’m filling out SF-85 now and I’ve heard that I have to list that I have underwent an investigation before.
How do I know if I was investigated?
I did e-mail the agency asking about it and this was their reply:
“the agency initiated an in-house background check, not a full security clearance, the check should not be considered a parallel investigation with regards to your completion of an SF-85 now.”
I still don’t know what it means? Should I list that I was investigated in the past? Or can I start a clean slate on the SF-85 since the forms wouldn’t be compared?
Was it also weird to fill out the standard form and e-mailing it to them?
