My daughter is applying for a Secret clearance via form sf86. She works for a
private consulting firm and hasn’t a current contract with a Federal agency.
Her background and record is spotless.
I worked for a Federal agency for several decades (with clearances) and retired 14 years ago. Prior to my retirement, I was subject to an internal agency investigation. The investigation concerned serious misconduct on my part which occurred nearly 40 years ago, but only came to the attention of my agency 15 years ago. The investigation resulted in a recommendation for my dismissal,
and the revocation of my clearances. At which point I resigned- I was elegible for retirement at that point.
My misconduct nearly 40 years ago did not lead to any charge, conviction,
or interaction with law enforcement. I have no criminal record of any kind.
My concern is that since I am listed as a
parent on my daughter’s sf86, that my records at my former Federal agency will be accessed and all the derogatory information therein will be provided to whomever is processing my daughter’s sf86 security application.
If that is the case, is there any chance that my daughter would be questioned about my derogatory information? Many family members are aware of the circumstances of my resigning from the Federal agency 14 years ago, but my daughter does not. And I hope I can keep it that way.
Or, would whomever is doing the security investigation contact me instead, if they felt there were any unresolved issues?
I emphasize that my misconduct took place 38 years ago, 10 years before my daughter was born, and I have no criminal record. What I do have is a clearance revocation 14 years ago.
Sorry for the length and thanks in advance.
