Interview to adjudication & other Q's

I have a couple of questions about timeline from interview to adudication, etc.

I submitted the eqip May 31, 2018 and was waiting on an interim TS. I was interviewed on Thursday (7/26) and yesterday (7/27) recieved an email from my potential manager that I was denied the interim. While I didn’t mention my previous drug use on the SF86 since it was over 12-13 years ago, I did mention it to the investigator when asked. My mom is also a permanent resident here in the states from Japan but not a citizen.

Question 1: does the additional info the investigator receive during the interview about the drug use affect the likelihood of receiving an interim? I was under the impression the interim decision was based on an initial review of my SF-86. Maybe it was just a coincidence I was sent the denial after my interview?

Of course I’m a little uneasy about being denied the interim but I’m still fairly confident I’ll get cleared (fingers crossed).

Question #2: what are your expierences/timeline from when you get interviewed to getting a decision?

Thanks in advance!

The previous poster is incorrect, each case timeline may differ based on the agency, complexity, issues involved, and timing of when it was submitted vs. workload. I have seen anywhere from 90 days to 2 years.

Regarding the interim, that is a pre-investigation decision based on criminal history, review of the application, specific position requirement thresholds if any, and the agency.

Does the agency do the Adjudications for PR’s?

Thank you, this is helpful.

Update: I received my TS yesterday (8/27).

Surprisingly, the whole process was very quick:

-Submitted EQIP 5/31
-Interview on 7/26
-Interim denied 7/27
-Received email from HR that I was cleared 8/27


Congratulations!!! Good luck.
