My e-QIP submittal for a National Security Position (Secret) as a contractor was submitted Oct 2, 2016. In mid-December my FSO informed me that the application was "Eligibility Pending". I understand the Eligibility Pending status, but do not know how to respond / find out more detailed information. As far as I know, my background is clean as a whistle.
My FSO asked if I had been contacted by the FBI or OPM. I have not been contacted. The FSO then suggested I write a letter to Defense Management Data Center (DMDC), Attn: Privacy Act Office to request further information and perhaps ask for an interview. Does anyone have any experience submitting a letter? Sample wording perhaps, and what was the result.
The contractor may have another position available that does not require a Secret clearance, but that does require a (less stringent) investigation for issuance of a CAC. Problem there is that you can't have two e-QIP investigations active at the same time, so we'd have to kill the first to initiate the second. Which would be Ok with me because I actually like the other position better, but am concerned about starting the entire process over again (time wise).
Any advice / experience will be much appreciated.
