A little help please.
i got hired in 2016 and was put in for TS. I submitted my sf86 and went to work. I moved to a new company, same job in January 2018. I had to get a new badge which now showed 2 stars interim instead of 3 stars interim. When I inquired about why I now only had an interim secret I was told by my FSO that I could not be cleared higher than what the program was at. A few months ago I was notified by some of my colleagues that they were contacted by an investigator to arrange a phone interview. I inquired with my FSO a second time regarding why I could not keep the interim TS. I got the same answer. Finally on July 11th I was contacted by an investigator to setup an interview for a TS. I told them that was fine, but that I would only be needing a secret clearance. The investigator told me that the TS investigation would no longer proceed. I was under the impression that I would get a final secret. I passed all of the information along to my FSO including the investigators name and phone number.
On August 21st I was notified by the ISSO on my program that I did not have a valid clearance in JPAS. They took my badge and pulled my VAR. I notified my FSO and found that my clearance was in loss of jurisdiction. I was told that this happened because I told the investigator I did not need the TS anymore. My FSO put in a request to reopen the investigation. The TS investigation needs to finish and then I will be downgraded to Secret. My FSO told me it could take a couple of weeks. As of 11/13/18 I am still without a clearance. The most recent information I have is “PSMO has transferred it to OPM to pick back up the investigation”
I am convinced that my FSO did not do their job. Unfortunately the FSO is also the HR Manager. I am trying not to make waves. I am still working but have to be escorted everywhere. I am missing out on a lot of critical work.
The questions I have are:
What is the best estimate of how much longer this will take? Do I go to the end of the line for investigations?
Will the LOJ be on my record even after I get a final clearance?
After finishing the TS investigation and then being downgraded, will I still have a TS technically? Will I be available for any TS work?
Thanks in advance.
