Hello everyone and thank you for reading this. I’m in big of a pickle and have received tons of conflicting info. I currently work as a federal contractor for the department of education which requires an 85-P, my eQIP was certified and fixed with the errors yesterday. Back in July I accepted a position with a DOD contractor and filled out an 86 for a TS, but I have a question.
Will me submitting my 85-p paperwork discontinue my TS investigation or cancel it? I called dcsa this morning and spoke to two different people, one telling me it would stop it, the other person I gave my ssn and she looked up my account. She said it would be fine and she saw this regularly and the investigations would run concurrently. lol, I also had a DCSA employee (I know personally) tell me the 85-p is for trust and is not a clearance, and would not effect my TS investigation. They also said this “ Being granted a lower level or having a lower level investigation happening will not shut down or cancel out any TS investigation“.
