Written Interrogatory Response

When used, the Written Interrogatory (or simply Interrogatory) is usually the first method of communication between the Industry Division of the DoD Consolidated Adjudication Facility (CAF) and a security clearance applicant. Other divisions DoD CAF and other federal agencies use a “Request for Information” (RFI) or similarly titled requests, when they are unable to make a clearance or employment suitability determination without additional information. Failure to properly answer an Interrogatory or RFI usually results in the issuance of a “Letter of Intent” (LOI) with a “Statement of Reasons” (SOR) to deny/revoke a clearance or a “Notice of Proposed Action” (NOPA) to disqualify an individual from employment. In either case it adds months to the adjudication process. The response to an Interrogatory or RFI is best submitted as a sworn affidavit, and as such applicants need professional assistance in their preparation.  This service will provide a detailed review of the issues and obtain from the client all relevant information surrounding the issues. In most cases portions of the clearance application form and investigative file (if available) will need to be reviewed. The service will provide the client a carefully crafted draft and final response to the Interrogatory or RFI in affidavit format that accurately and completely answers, refutes, explains, extenuates, and/or mitigates matters raised by the Interrogatory or RFI. (Average range of charges: 8 to 24 hours)
