I received adjudication this past April, have done everything the contractor has asked me to do, including getting my photo for credentialing, etc. The problem is that I do not have a start/training date. They said the next training is October/November, but could not tell me whether I will be in that training due to limited capacity and depending on location. That is all I know.
In the meantime, other people I know in my area who have been recently adjudicated – but are working for a different contractor – have already been trained and have started working.
Here is my question: Since I have already been adjudicated with a TS clearance, can a different BI contractor pick me up without having to go through the entire clearance process again? In other words, if I applied at a different contractor, could they just take me right away and begin my training without me having to do the whole clearance process over? What, if any, are the ramifications from my current contractor? I just want to work.
