This is the timeline of the events and the details.
June 2017 - Submitted my EQIP form online for TS/SSBI,
December 2017 - Laid off from the DoD program without any issues/problems.
February 2018 - Accepted a job offer to work in the DoT for a Secret security clearance.
March 2018 - Resigned from the DoT without starting the actual work 2 weeks
after accepting the job offer.
The FSO from the DoT mentioned that my background investigation was completed and the adjudication was pending prior to starting the job. The FSO informed me that they would request the authorized agency to grant me an interim Secret clearance without transferring over to the DoT. They would keep using the DoD designation. I never verified or confirmed my status prior to leaving this job. I have a few questions that I am not clear on.
- What is the status of my security clearance level and my adjudication status?
- Is it active and do I have an interim security clearance?
- Can I continue to seek new jobs using this status?
