Background: I had a ~14 month investigation for a clearance upgrade and have been in adjudication for ~3 months, I recently had an interview with an adjudicator and (kicking myself) it was only after that I requested and received my investigation from OPM.
I spent much of this evening gathering information to interpret the results and done pretty well. There no good, reasonably comprehensive source online. The FOIAed documents aren’t very much help if you don’t know what the various codes mean, and I’d like to help the curious and those in similar situations to me. Is there a good reason I shouldn’t post what I’ve got? Possibly to this board?
And on the reassurance front: my OPM assessment was A. This is the most positive OPM grade you can get while still having issues. Looking through the investigation I can see one problem was caused by factually inaccurate information provided by a health related organization. I believe I cleared that up during my recent interview, but now I have been told a psychiatric exam will be required. This surprised me because it doesn’t seem supported by the investigation, which had nothing derogatory to say about my mental health aside from acknowledging consulting a medical professional. My case looks quite clean to me. I think I must have rubbed the adjudicator the wrong way, or volunteered too much information? Can anyone provide reassuring anecdotes or statistics about a case OPM assessed as “A” being very unlikely to have a negative result?
