Hello All, I am posting here to see if anyone can shed some light on my particular situation.
My TS/SCI was adjudicated in 10/2017 through the Army Reserves (DOD). I recently accepted an offer to work for the NGA as a contractor. The contract is through a third party company and not directly through NGA. I was asked by the contractor company to complete a SF-86 that my new employer’s FSO will submit to the NGA to see if I get cleared to work at their facility.
I need help in understanding this. I thought that since my TS/SCI was recently adjudicated and verifiable through JPAS, why am I being asked to complete another SF86 and how long will it take? The HR rep for the contracting company advised me that it will take about 2-3 weeks from start to finish to get an answer back from eNom. I already received start day from my company but now they’re telling that it might need to be pushed back depending on what NGA decides.
I’m somewhat hesitant to believe it will only take 2-3 weeks for a new SF-86 when for my current TS it took about 18 months. And why would they ask for the same info for a clearance that I already possessed? Has anyone else experienced something similar?
thank you all.
