I currently hold a DoD TS and am employed as a DoD contractor. I am applying for a position with the DOJ that requires a TS along with SCI and requires a CI poly.
I have absolutely nothing to hide from the poly. However, I am nervous just thinking about having to take it. It’s not uncommon for people to fail while still being honest. Am I overthinking things? Do I really have anything to worry about as long as I am honest.? I am aware of what this type of poly covers, and I know darn well I am or have not been involved with anything like that.
Does failing the poly strip me of my current TS or can it cause issues down the road?
