5. No, it doesnt work that way.

As somebody who has held a clearance previously, but thankfully now I no longer have to, I can tell you that it doesnít work that way.

The investigating entity never makes the decision- only the actual hiring authority / employing agency does.

Most investigations find little or nothing adverse in the background. If that is the case, thatís what the report says, and the employing agency decides to issue the clearance.

If there is something found, that information is passed along, but it is never the decision of the investigator to issue or not issue.

That final decision always remains solely with the hiring entity.

What this tells me is that olí Huck here didnít know the answer, and was winging it.
