About 8 years ago I was granted a secret with DHS after a SOR all revolving around foreign contacts, duel citizenship and potential divided loyalty. These issues were adjudicated in my favor and I independently renounced my duel citizenship officially. Never looked back. Recently I left DHS for a promotion in a DOD position.
I now have a new job with DOD and they said they cannot transfer the secret and no reciprocity. New investigation from scratch. Also no interim clearance for secret because “something flagged in my background”. I have absolutely no other issues legal, financial or other. I assume it is the foreign stuff again so immediately showed the security officer the documents from renouncing. They said I should just “go home” and they will let me know when the investigation is complete, no other info. What is going on and what can I do to be proactive? What is the current processing time for the secret with DOD?
