First, I apologize if these questions have been asked and answered.This is a helpful site and I am thankful for it, as without it, I think I would’ve have lost my sanity.
1.) If someone is finally cleared for TS/SCI (presumably after a long time), but the sponsor retracts/cancels the billet for whatever reason, does that clearance still remain with the individual? Can the individual use it to apply for other positions?
2.) If someone is finally cleared for TS/SCI (again, presumably after many months/yrs), and the sponsor issues a FO, does the individual HAVE to accept the position? If the individual chooses not to accept the position, does his/her clearance go away? Or would the individual still be able to keep it?
Thanks in advance, as always!!
