I am new to the site, I just wanted to get some insight/past experiences from a recent question I have about my SC investigation.
Currently working for a big name federal contractor, I was put in for a TS/SCI clearance. My clearance is ground up; never had one before. Paperwork was submitted Mar-2018, Interim granted Apr-2018, Interviewed Sept-2018 with a few people already interviewed.
I had a lot of references in my SF-86 since I have lived and worked so many places. From what I can gather, only the most recent job and housing locations had those references contacted (maybe 2-3 each), and probably 1-2 of my personal references were contacted. I had about a dozen references put down and they only contacted half of them. Another interesting note is many of these interviews happened in parallel, all in about a month, but since about October, no one else has been contacted
A few of those references that were not yet contacted moved locations (across the country). Being proactive that I am, I decide to inform my BG investigator about the new info so they aren’t looking in the wrong place. But when I told the investigator, she said “at this time [she] doesn’t need any new information, because they haven’t requested additional information” I don’t know who they are (her supervisors perhaps?). She says that while my investigation has not concluded or even moved to adjudication, she doesn’t need the updated information yet. My question is this:
The way she said it made it seem like they might not even pursue those other references, unless absolutely necessary. If they don’t need more information and have already talked to the references they need, what exactly is left of the investigation? Does it just go through additional levels of approval? Why were my other references not contacted?
I always thought there was only 1 investigator (the one that originally interviews you) who sends out field officers to interview your friends, family, etc. Once all the information is gathered, your original investigator reviews it, writes up a report, and sends it to an adjudicator. is that about right?
I know this is a ton of information in one post, I just want to have all my bases covered in case something is not clear.
