I have a TS SSBI and the PR Investigation is due March 18 based on original DOD 5 year PR time frame. I am debating taking a chance to learn new skills in my field (IT) and taking a opportunity that only requires a Public Trust. This new position will involve me in cloud/devops which is the new big thing in Government. So this is a great opportunity. However I don’t want to lose my TS clearance.
I have heard the new DOD policy for for PR investigations is 6 years so now I have a few questions…
What is my new TS SSBI clearance expiration date based on DODs new policy?
If I take the Public Trust job in Dec 2017 when is the last absolute day for me to get back into a TS cleared position to retain my clearance?
Is there any way to reactivate my clearance after I go pass the TS SSBI clearance expiration date in an uncleared position? Any limits on time frame?
