I am new to this page, however, I really liked going thru all these comments.
Anyhow,should I be worried about my TS/SCI clearance process with NSA as I was accepted in a government position.
Please help if any one has an idea or can guide me !!!
08/2017: Conditional Job Offer
09/2017: SF-86 submitted
11/2017: one reference was interviewed
12/2017 my current job supervisors interviewed
01/2018: Contacted by Investigator
02/2018: Interview with Investigator
10/2018: contacted Investigator about my BI process and he said that he submitted.
03/2019: Contacted by NSA HR department and said that I am still in good shape and process.
07/2019: Contacted senator office
08/2019: Received a response from NSA HR to senator office that I have foreign contacts.
11/2019: contacted HR department for any progress,so I have been told that I am still in suitable process.
Since than No NEWS !!!
So, should I be worry about my current application process? or do you guys think that I should get in touch with other senator regarding my TS/SCI progress.
Note: no ticket, no problem, no drug and no …etc
Every case is different, so there is no good ballpark time-estimate for how long the process should take. I do not know your entire personal history (and just so we’re clear, I am not asking you to provide it as it’s none of my business), so it’s hard to say. Based on what I’ve read on here though, having the process take over 2 years with long periods of little or no communication from employers or investigators is definitely NOT unheard of, so if they say you are still in processing, I would take them on their word and continue to be patient (I know it’s hard).
Based on the timeline you provided, it appears that the discovery of foreign contacts may be a big reason for the hold up. Were they reported on your SF-86? Is it just one or are there multiple contacts? This will definitely slow the process down as this increases the investigator workload.
Yeah a real bummer. Was a suitability denial, said I could reapply in one year. But honestly the idea of going through all that again feels pointless. No reason given, though apparently you can write to them for not information. No idea if they really disclose anything, but I doubt it. For backgrounds purposes I was going for a critical language position. Learned the language in country many years ago, now use it professionally in the states. Good credit, minor drug history more than ten years old, no foreign contacts for many years. Clean poly, passed my psych. Really at a loss of an explanation here.
unfortunately, I have received an email and it completely surprised me that I have been waiting for two and half years to complete my clearance process and suddenly they send me an email and says that " Unfortunately, this is to inform you that your position is closed and you may re-apply for new opening, please note that you are not declined,but the position is closed"
So, any expert knows that what to do at the point? any solution? are they going to void my BI or they will continue?
Just curious to know if any option I may have.
They will likely continue but that only helps if you find another position that requires pretty much the same investigation. Even if it gets discontinued, they SHOULD be able to reopen the existing investigation.
Thank you ,but would like to clarify it that I spoke with HR this morning ,and they told me that I can re-apply and I will have to go through the same process once again.
I am very confused that government spend money to process one person for two and half years and then suddenly stop the process and eliminate the position, while encourage me to re-apply for any position.
I agree and they may start the process from scratch, which is waste of money, time and discouraging applicants to reapply and make them to wait for 2-3 years at the end says, sorry position is closed.
This is why how wastefully taxpayers’ money(poor/middle class citizens) spent and no accountability.
