I was on a contract for about 2 years with DoD that contract just ended in Feb. When the contract ended i had an Active Interim Secret with an Open SSBI Investigation. Lucky for me the field interviews for my Investigation were completed before the contract ended. Atleast i believe they were completed.
to my knowledge OPM was conducting the investigation. NBIB investigator.
In the meantime I’ve found employment with a new company. The FSO of the company looked me up in the JPAS system and has taken ownership of my investigation under their cage code.
According to the FSO, my SSBI investigation is still open and has not closed which would start the adjudication process.
My FSO even said that he contacted DSS to ensure that my investigation and the adjudication of my TS continues.
However he did say that DSS will not estimate how much longer the process will be. He said he did not see any issues/problems as far as the process continuing pending completion of my investigation and then adjudication.
My FSO even said that If I still have the investigator’s phone number that interviewed me they may be able to provide insight on the investigation. he claims that it will remain a waiting game.
my question is
1.What is the difference between DSS and OPM? are they the same organization? Should I call one of them myself?
2. The investigator who interviewed me is not the same person who interviewed my references. would the NBIB Investigator who interviewed me be able to find out where my investigation is at?
3. My SSBI investigation has been open for 2 years. Will i need to wait another 2 years to get the investigation done?
4. What happens next?
