About 3 years ago I was recruited by a company for an overseas linguist position. They agreed to sponsor me and the investigation began in June 2018. My recruiter told me I was being sponsored for a secret level clearance and to expect the process to take around 8 months. Since then I would call in and check once every 3 months or so, several times I would be told my point of contact no longer worked for the company, and that there was a new program manager and FSO. Each time they told me there’s nothing I can do but wait. Eventually, one of the new program managers tells me that I’m actually being processed for a TSI, and that my investigation had been closed since April 2019, and is awaiting adjudication. He says that he wants to set up a polygraph for Spring 2020. Then covid hits and the polygraph can’t be scheduled, at this point it’s been years since I began the investigation but I’m thinking it’s a TSI with poly, that’s normal and it will be worth the wait. Eventually I call back because it’s been several months since we last spoke, I find out he no longer works for the company and I have a new FSO, and program manager. I only find this out because I called the main office and asked to speak to my previous point of contact. The person who picks up the phone tells me that the entire office is working remotely and he can not provide me their phone numbers. I email them 6 times since November 2020, without a single response. I tried contacting their support team on Facebook, and continue to call the main office, each time they only give them their emails. I can not talk to anyone from the company related to my project.
Started investigation in July 2018
Closed investigation in April 2019
Last contact with company July 2020
At this point I have no idea what I can do. I’ve considered calling the previous program manager on his personal cell, or asking my current company to run a JPAS on me.
If I clearance is approved is the individual notified by OPM, or only through the FSO?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
