I am currently working as a contractor with Company A in a contract with the DoD. I have a Secret Clearance (NACLC) that I obtained in 2010. Company A is conducting a T5 (SSBI) investigation that is still open. However, OPM says it’s in the final stages and soon will be sent for adjudication. Now, I have a job offer with Company B to work for a contract with the Customs and Border Patrol. The contract requires me to obtain a CBP BI before I can start. The FSO of Company B informed me that CBP is not going to conduct the BI because they will process a Reciprocity of an investigation. The FSO indicated me the reciprocity wouldn’t be for the Secret clearance because its too old and CBP won’t accept a NACLC investigation, and that I wouldn’t have to wait for the SSBI to be closed either so she doesnt know how CBP will do the reciprocity.
Can I assume CBP will wait for the SSBI to be completed, request a copy of the investigation, and perform their own adjudication?
Would CBP wait for the DoD to issue me their adjudication and then conduct a Reciprocity?
Any information would be appreciated.
