So far, from what I've seen, it's TS.

Generally, DOD jobs will require a Top Secret.  If my memory serves me correctly, some non-DoD agencies also require a Top Secret or its equivalent, Q (?) clearance.  The Top Secret is not required by non-DoD agencies that do not handle classified information.  Most of these designate their position Level 6, high risk public trust.  The biggest difference is that a SF-85P rather than a SF-86 is used, the period covered is seven rather than ten years, and a periodic reinvestigation is not generally required.

Na is correct.
 
I am a contracted employee in InfoSec, been with the USDA for 8 years. I have gone through 2 BI's, and carry a "Type 5 Moderate Risk - Position of Public Trust" clearance from OPM.
 
Hope that helps you.

I shouldn't have hit "Post" so soon. LOL
 
My form was an SF-85P as Na mentioned. However, mine went back 7 years the first time and then 10 years the second time. It involved an on-site interview with an investigator as well, but no poly like when I worked for OIG.
