  1. I have a TS/SCI with a CI polygraph for a clearance. When I retired from the Army on 1 December 2012, my clearance was valid but it was also undergoing the periodic review. The paperwork I have lists an outdated review. How do I obtain the results of the final adjucication now that I’m no longer in the service? I believe it will allow me to maintain a clearance for 2 years even though I’m not in a current position.

    Thanks and any feedback or advise would be appreciated,

    Daniel Alabre

  2. Daniel, from Mr. Henderson: “Under the provisions of the Privacy Act (PA), Mr. Alabre can request a printout of his JPAS record from the DMDC Privacy Act Office in Boyers, PA. Instructions for submitting the PA request can be found at http://dpclo.defense.gov/privacy/SORNs/component/osd/DMDC12.html under the paragraph titled, “Record Access Procedures.” The information he’s interested in will appear under the “Investigation Summary” and “Adjudication Summary” sections of his JPAS (actually JCAVS) record. Recently one of my clients received his JPAS printout from DMDC about 2 weeks after he submitted the PA request.

    It’s hard to say exactly where he stands without knowing whether his PR and/or adjudication were completed. There is a provision in the regulations that allows (but does not require) a gaining agency to reinstate a clearance even though the last PR was conducted more than 5 years ago, provided it was not more than 7 years ago and a request for a new PR is submitted at the same time as the clearance reinstatement.”

  3. Al, individuals cannot “extend” their security clearance if they are no longer in a position that requires a security clearance. A reinvestigation must be ordered by a cleared facilities employer.
