Pretty self-explanatory. I have a current DOD TS/SCI and am waiting to be DIA cleared for a contract position.

I received the prior clearance less than a year ago and nothing detrimental has happened since then.  

My question is, since DIA and a few other agencies are under DOD, how long does it usually take to get cleared from an individual agency?

Thank you for entertaining my question.

I'm in the same boat.  Would like inputs on this topic as well.

You already have clearanceTongue.  Read this on reciprocity.

It states they still enforce "employment suitability", in other words they're going to investigate you again.

the contract world is really bizarre. When I was under one contract with DIA, a lot of the prior military guys that had TS/SCIs under DOD had them quickly transfer over with no paperwork and a simple read on. On a different contract, everyone had to redo and resubmit their 86. 

With that being said, it all depends on what type of work you'll be doing under the contractor. Anything that is intel/ law enforcement-related (regardless of prior clearance status), expect to have it redone.

Another thing I never understood is how people managed to get SCI with no polys. I've seen my fair share of those as well.

Hello, thanks for the prompt reply.  The job is not intel-related but financial/budgetary in nature.

No Poly is necessary.  It's crazy how I already have a DOD TS/SCI that was adjudicated less than a year ago and it's not transferrable although the DIA is under DOD.  3 weeks and counting since I turned in my new SF86.

MrHyde, I totally agree with you and understand your frustration!  My SSBI-PR for TS/SCI was adjudicated by the Navy in Aug of this year.  Going on 4th week on waiting for DIA to approve my clearance to take a contractor position.  I didn't have to refill a new SF86.  Keep me posted since it sounds like our situations are very similiar.

^ Will definitely keep you updated.  The person who hired me assured me it takes roughly 2 weeks but now states another two weeks.  I am not currently short on monetary funds but it would be nice to get a concrete estimate on the adjudication whether it be 1,2,4,8 months in the near future so I can find a temporary gig in the meantime.

MrHyde, check this link out.  http://www.dni.gov/electronic_reading_room/ICPG_704_4.pdf

Section D: Crossover Case of the doc.  This would be us.  From reading the acticle, it should be a simple process to transfer our clearances.

The key point of your link is:

In such circumstances, the government sponsor shall update its records to reflect the new employment affiliation and the clearance and SCI access approval eligibility.

I'm pretty sure this is another demonstration of how daunting/PC the federal government can be.

They've begun contacting my references.  Oh gosh, this better not be a whole ordeal where I have to wait another 4-8 months.

Geez, hopefully it doesn't become a whole ordeal for you!  It's a good thing I took the recruiter's advise and have not resigned from my current job.

Does anyone know how long it takes for a Army TS/SCI to "crossover" to DIA? I accepted a position with DIA and currentely have a TS/SCI granted by Army CCF.  My new company had me fill out the SF-86 and they submitted a nomination billit. 
I was told it would take 2-4 weeks, however I am now going on 2 months.  Is anyone familiar with this process.  I have heard from my FSO that DIA is very backlogged and it could take sometime.
 
Thank you

DIAwait,

I was told 4-8 weeks for the clearance "crossover".  I've been waiting 3 months now. Waiting has been so frustrating!  Like I said before, SSBI-PR was completed and adjudicated to maintain TS/SCI in Aug 2011 by the Navy.  It would be nice to get inputs from people who already went through the same experience as us.

I agree, so much for SCI reciprosity :), it would be good to know when I can give my current employer my 2 weeks,  waiting is such a pain in the ass, for all we know it could be sitting on a adjudicator's desk for 3 months!
 
Everyone is welcome to comment on this issue, if you have past experience, please do!
 
thanks Control

I actually had my security interview 2 weeks ago for a position at DIA, and was told today that my clearance is currently being adjudicated. I too have an active TS with SCI read ons. My clearance was adjudicated by the US Navy back in Oct 09, and DIA just adjudicated my SCI in July 2011. However when I began the hiring paperwork for DIA, they said I had to have a new investigation done. Here it is 2 weeks after the SF86 and interview, and its already with DIA.
Did you have to resubmit a SF86 only, or did they reopen a new investigation?
