Already have clearance, denied by another agency


I currently hold an active TS/SCI clearance from my agency, I applied to another agency and they said they would not give me a clearance and I now had to alert all USG entities in the future that I was denied by them. Will this threaten my current clearance?

The justification for their denial is based on information I have reported already to my agency.


Your scenario does not make sense. If you currently hold a TS/SCI then another agency cannot grant or deny you another clearance. Now if you are talking about specific SCI compartment access then that is a whole other situation. The owners of the program can determine the criteria for access and if you are denied then you should report this to your SSO and ask for further advice.


Wss that other agency the CIA?

They appear to have more stringent requirements for their clearances than those for TS/SCI’s at other federal agencies.
