Could someone please tell me what a company means when they have the following in their job description:

Security Clearance Level

Security Clearance Basis Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI)
If I already have an active Secret what would I have to go thru to apply for a position with this description?

Read through the wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_clearance
It's likely that your secret was based on a National Agency Check with Local Agency Check and Credit Check rather than a SSBI.  If your current secret clearance wasn't based on a SSBI, then you'll be required to fill out the SF-86 for that type of investigation.   If your secret was based on a SSBI, but more that 5 years ago, you'll have to have the periodic reinvestigation started.
