Ask a Military Lawyer. Get Your Military Law Questions Answered
I need to know if a certain type of security clearance with an intelligence agency is nontransferable to another agency. This is a military law question.
Oh, sorry, your title just says attorney.
The question is if someone has a TS/SCI with Full Scope Polygraph clearance, how easy is it to transfer from the hosting agency to another intelligence agency, say the DIA. And how long does the FSP stay active?
Sorry for "nitpickling" but what do mean by "transfer"? Does the FSP become invalid and the new type of clearance "TS/SCI no poly" take effect?
The reason I'm asking is I have an offer to go to the DIA and am concerned that it will "invalidate" my FSP.
Okay, so if I go to the DIA and things don't work out, say, within a couple of months, can I go back to the agency that supports the FSP?
