Can I apply for positions if I don't have a security clearance?
Yes. Not all of CACI's open positions require a security clearance and some positions only require that you be eligible to obtain one. Check the job description for security clearance requirements. You may also visit our Advanced Search page and click on “None” in the “Security Clearance” section.
Will CACI hire non-citizens without a security clearance?
Yes. In some instances, our customers will accept a candidate who is a non-citizen and possesses a valid Green Card. However, please keep in mind that most of our customers require candidates to be U.S. citizens who are already cleared or able to obtain a clearance. Check each job description for specific requirements regarding U.S. citizenship and security clearance.
How do I obtain a security clearance if I don't currently have one?
Security clearances are provided only to government employees and contractors who are required to have them in order to perform their work assignments. Many of our positions require an active security clearance; however, some projects allow CACI to submit an uncleared candidate for a clearance prior to the candidate's start. These types of positions list the clearance status as "Must be Obtainable" in their job descriptions. Note that all security clearance requests must be submitted by an employer on behalf of the employee who will be performing classified work. You may not apply for a security clearance on your own.
What do the terms "active," "current," and "expired" mean in regards to my clearance?
If you possess an "active" security clearance, it means that you have a clearance granted by the U.S. government and are presently eligible to access classified information. A "current" security clearance means that you have a clearance granted by the U.S. government and are eligible to access classified information but only with a reinstatement that must occur within two years. Your security clearance becomes "expired" if it has not been used in more than two years and cannot be reinstated. Anyone with an "expired" security clearance must resubmit a clearance application for review.
Will CACI upgrade my current clearance?
We cannot upgrade clearances without client sponsorship. Most of our clients require us to provide them with someone already fully cleared to the level required for the work assignment. We do have a few clients that will allow us to upgrade clearances; those positions will be listed as Clearance "Must be Obtainable."
Why isn't the type of polygraph listed in the clearance requirements?
Due to customer regulations, we are not able to publicly advertise the type of security clearance polygraph required for all positions. The recruiter will disclose the specific polygraph requirements to the candidates who meet the position qualifications.
Can I transfer my security clearance from agency to agency?
Yes, it's possible, but there can sometimes be roadblocks if the granting government agency doesn't accept a clearance from another government agency. CACI security personnel will review these cases to ensure that the correct course of action is taken.
What is the average delay in clearance crossover processing?
The timeline for a security clearance crossover depends on the customer. On average, the process takes one to two weeks, but is subject to change due to customer constraints or delays.
Will my clearance become inactive if my new job doesn't require it?
Clearance eligibility requirements vary based on the customer and whether the person remains in access to sensitive information. If you begin a new job that doesn't require a clearance or requires a lower level clearance than you currently possess, your current clearance may become inactive.
