Received a call for drug screening

Hi! I’m in the process of getting a secret security clearance. Today I got a call with a date for my drug screening. Based on your experience does this mean my investigation is almost done? I sent my SF 86 back in May and was contacted by my investigator in June to further explain my one time use of marijuana back in 2013. Since then I haven’t heard back from them until today to schedule my drug screening.

Are you waiting for the clearance so you can start work? If so, then yes it is possible that they are getting ready to bring you on board and they realized you didn’t have a drug screen (or did one so long ago that you need to do a new one).

Other than that, the drug screen is pretty much independent of the clearance process.


Thank you! Yes, I’m just waiting on my clearance to be able to start.
