Double, triple wait times at OPM for background investigations

If it seems like the wait for your security clearance is endless, that’s because it is — or at least twice as long as it should take, according to goals set by the Office of Personnel Management(OPM).

Despite fiscal 2016 targets of less than 40 days for initial and Secret national security investigations, and 80 days for Top Secret national security investigations, new numbers from OPM’s fiscal 2016 Agency Financial Report show investigations were taking double and triple those times thanks to contract changes and reduced funding.
