Is anyone here currently undergoing an SSBI or awaiting adjudication through NGA?  I'll start a thread for any NGA-specific clearance questions, away from the main clearance forum.

I for my part have been in adjudication for TS-SCI eligibility since winter.

If you'd like to contribute, how has the process gone for you?  What kind of feedback have you received?

My investigation started at the end of June and I have been waiting to go into the adjudication phase.

So you've been in adjudication for almost 5.5ish months. Did you have extensive travel or foreign contacts or other issues? Perhaps this is a normal wait time, who knows.

Which hiring event were you hired from?

The process has gone relatively ok for me. Most of my field investigators were nice, and the field investigations took about 2-3 weeks to complete. Now I'm just twiddling my thumbs waiting for someone to tell me that I've moved to adjudication.

Hi All --

New user and NGA worker-in-waiting.  My field investigations ended just recently, though I'm uncertain whether it's gone to adjudication yet.  My interview, partner's interview, parents, employment, passport, drug, vision, etc, were all completed.  Just have the polygraph to do left, methinks.  Which brings me to my question --

Has anyone here yet to undergo the polygraph?  The person who told me I had been selected at NGA mentioned that the polygraph only happens once you've been brought on board, but I fail to see how this is possible, since you need the clearance to begin working.  If you did do the polygraph, did it happen prior to being hired?

Any insight is appreciated :)  No need to share the horror stories though, we all know how poli's are.

Thanks Big smile

Hmm. I guess I forgot to update this. To my surprise, I recently found out I've been in adjudication for ~1 month.

bobbymonster: From everyone I've talked to, the polygraph isn't until after you've started working at NGA. I haven't heard of anyone taking the polygraph prior to being hired BUT my recruiter told me that they are in the process of changing this, so that the polygraph is done before starting. She said she didn't know if by the time we get our clearance whether the polygraph will be before placement/EOD or after. I guess it is a surprise!

bobbymonster, I believe you will receive your TS Clearance after you have been successfully Adjudicated, but in order to access their system, you will have to take the polygraph test for SCI Access. If you fail, they can terminate your clearance and employment or reassign you to a  nonsensitive position.  Some Agencies grant TS/SCI Clearances without a Polygraph.

Hey....just wondering if anyone had any updates........I have been in adjudication for 6 weeks now.  My recruiter told me that it should take 4- 8 weeks if everything goes ok.  Hopefully I'll be hearing something soon.

I've heard nothing...been in adjudication for ~11 weeks now. My husband is European so likely that is holding me up.

On a side note regarding the polygraph, polygraphs are now being done prior to arrival. I've been told that we should all get calls within the next few months to do the polygraph. Those who live closest to DC will get called first. Those like me on the west coast will have to wait a few months...

my recruiter didn't say explicitly, but it seemed to imply that it was only at an NGA location.

my recruiter also stated that there will be no EODs for the rest of this year. the very earliest EOD will be in 2012.

Has anyone else been schedule to take the polygraph test yet? I chosen the VA site since I will likely be working at that site.  I believe everyone will be given a tour after the Polygraph, so you should wear your most comfortable shoes :). Expect to be there until   3:30pm (could be earlier) .  Your flight will be prepaid and you will be reimbursed for your hotel and driving expenses.

When did your Investigation start?
I'm kinda confused about NGA's poly ... They used to do poly after EOD, aren't they?
My POC told me that I'm in adjudication since early Nov..but I haven't contacted for poly yet..
Does adjudication should be after poly? Can poly and adjudication be done simultaneously?

Yes, Some Agency gives Polygraphs before they start the investigation.  NGA have changed their policy and they now give polygraphs before EOD.  My investigation started in August.

I'm also waiting NGA to approve clearance.. My investigation also stated last august.. when did they change to give poly prior to be on board? Is there an official contact # to check the status of one's status or ask questions about clearance process?

I believe they started this month.  I guess you can contact your recruiter or a Facility security officer.

I think NGA give polygraph tests only bi-weekly to about 5 candidates. It appears the number of people that takes Polygraph tests Varies per week.
