Hi All! It’s been a while. Quick question for investigators/adjudicators, and apologies if this has been answered, but I was unable to find something similar to this set of circumstances.
Submitted SF-86 in Summer of 2018 for Secret. Denied suitability in early 2019 based on self-disclosed recreational drug use (marijuana), last use in Summer of 2017. Successfully appealed the suitability denial and received my clearance, entered federal service in late Spring 2019.
I’m currently filling out SF-86 again after accepting a position requiring TS/SCI (same agency). In my >1.5 years of federal service, I’ve had nothing but glowing performance reviews, including a couple awards. I’ve had no security incidents and there is no new information to report.
I understand the investigation process is more thorough for TS, but do I have anything to worry about re: some of the previous issues from my Secret adjudication? Should I expect to go through the same arduous process again, or will the investigator/adjudicator focus more on my time since entering federal service? Should I include details rom my successful appeal in the submitted documents? Any other advice?
