Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

Hi
I currently hold Secret DOD. It just became “current” as I been redeployed from oversea.
I was told by the contract manager of potential new employer that if they initiate TS/SCI process the investigation will negate the validity of my current CI. Everybody know that TS/SCI process is lengthy and can take years. If I find meanwhile a different job that requires Secret level would I be able to use my old clearance or have to wait until they validate new CI for TS? In other words, will I be tied to that new employer until the end of investigation because CI in process?
Thanks

An investigation has no relation to a adjudicated investigation. What this person may be thinking of is that a person can't have simultaneous background checks at the same time. Usually this arises when a person accepts multiple job offers and each agency initiates a background check.

Upgrade or renewal doesnt negate any previous clearance unless you end up getting denial for TS/SCI or revoked clearance.

Everyone is correct. That will not negate your current Secret with CI investigation.

Also, to correct people, you can have multiple investigation in the que at once. While it is not ideal and each entity should see the open investigation, it is common for one person to have two I'm the que. And in fact can be interviewed twice in the same span of time as each investigation is different.

As an agency, they would just have to pay for the investigation.
