I am a contractor with an "active" TS clearance with access to SCI. The problem is that my periodic reinvestigation is taking forever. According to JPAS, the investigation closed in January 2014 and I am still waiting.
I don't think another employer will consider me for a position requiring SCI access until my PR is finally adjudicated... but my last investigation was within ten years, so could a new employer hire me for a position requiring a Secret clearance?
I'm concerned that the "open" adjudication trumps everything and a new employer couldn't even grant me a secret based on an SSBI from less than ten years ago (and even that clock is ticking).
