Thanks @Xenos . I got an email on Nov 2nd that I am fully cleared and that I should expect an FJO within a week. Today is December 7th…I’m still waiting.
I would politely nudge your recruiter about the FJO. I experienced a similar delay. Some recruiters might be getting ready to take time off from the holidays or are just getting back into the office. And some might be transitioning into a new office (that was the case with mine).
In general, interim TS clearances can be granted.
If you’re referring specifically about the NSA, they don’t do that. Pretty much all employees have SCI and you cannot be granted SCI access with an interim clearance.
I’d say it is possible, but highly unusual. Somebody else said no SCI access without a final clearance… that was not the case in the past but would not surprise me at all if they are requiring it now. I am pretty sure that these SAP (special access programs) require a final clearance.
Yeah, all people will be able to see is that there is an open investigation.
Yes, that is true for SAP as well.
I am pleased to report that I was able to renegotiate my salary up. It is now just a half of my current salary (original CJO) was a third. I’m very happy and looking forward to actually start.
Thanks everyone for the words of support during this process. I will still be checking this board from time to time.
molodets! Thanks for passing along the news
Sure sounds like it. Covid impacted ability to get stuff done as did contract change and senior skilled adjudicator leaving. I lived in the poly world almost 10 years. Can honestly say glad to have in rear view mirror. Just a plain old TS SCI now. Nothing to hide…but suffering through insufferable poly people? I’m done.
Of course the CIA has no qualms about sending applicants, who have devoted months and months to the copious Agency application process, an abrupt two-sentence letter of rejection.
I’m hoping that the appearance of Antipolygraph.org on this site isn’t something that will, of itself, jeopardize bona fide users of this blog!
In the same boat. 4 years: Sf86, BI, poly, 2 1/2 years radio silence, sf86c, sf86, BI again, radio silence since feb '21
Nah he pops up over the years here and there. I get his point of view and bitterness. But his 8nputs and soapbox doesn’t help people. More just complaining about it being pseudo science…that the government buys into.
Has anyone ever gotten emails directly from security personnel (not recruiters) asking for additional information during the adjudication process? This was a few months ago and I’ve been told I was still in adjudication but I was curious if anyone knew what went into this or how long it sets the applicant back.
Yes, some places do this. I always say it is a good sign because it means your case is actively being reviewed and is no longer languishing in a queue somewhere. I dont think it sets you back but it is a bit different that it has been a few months… assuming you provided the requested information in a timely manner. Of course the holidays slow things down a bit.
Yeah I provided the info ASAP so that I had all the responses in by October 1 or 2 I believe. Nothing since
During my process, I got an e-mail from security asking for a copy of my birth certificate even though I had already gave one to my investigator.
Take that for what it’s worth.
Always weird when told “we were waiting on your DD-214” MEANWHILE…nobody told candidate. Or the submitting security manager
It seemed like everything went well during the meeting. A week later I was contacted and scheduled to redo a portion of the medical that timed out from over two years ago.
The mere fact forms time out should tell the government they are moving too slow.
I am going to stay positive and hope they can get me on in the next few months after the medical is updated. I expressed my dissatisfaction with the length of the process during the meeting and how it has affected my career and life. I did get an apology and the excuse of Covid. Maybe that is why things seem to be moving so quickly now.
