Is there anything different between secret/confidential clearances anymore since they are both tier 3?
Anyone know? I guess a little suprised that someone with a confidential security clearance thats due for a reinvestigation would need to be evaulated more thoroughly at secret level as opposed to confidential.
Why would you believe that a confidential clearance is a T3? Secret and confidential clearances are two different investigations.
Thanks for the reply… I was looking around with Google searches… This link has a nice chart on page 2 saying confidential/secret are both tier 3s. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.dss.mil/documents/psmo-i/Tier_Investigation_News_Update_10052015.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwik9ZW6y4LdAhUIiIMKHS2MADEQFjAOegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw16-bt0Gf2YdyGJ9Qerw5sX&cshid=1535007249476
OK. Got it. I was thinking confidential in terms of Public Trust. I think there is some flexibility in the term, but I see in this case it is used as a classification.
