I received an oddly worded letter from a 3-letter agency and couldn’t tell if I was denied clearance or they just stopped investigating my background. The letter indicated that I was no longer being considered for employment, but the reason was vague. It appeared that I lost my conditional job offer due to other competition of more qualified people (which seems odd since I was in communication with the person who hired me) and / or? that they “are unable to give further consideration” to my application, which seemed to be form-letter language with no apparent findings or denial regarding my “suitability”.
Up until mid-Feb, I had been getting calls periodically to indicate they were still interested. Has anyone else received something like this or tell me what the letter means in regards to a security clearance - was it denied or did it just stop? I did request additional information, but I am not sure how long that would take (another year?). Meanwhile, I am going through a public trust background check for my current cyber-security job and looking at leadership opportunities that require a TSC. Should look at a future or do future opportunities end here with whatever it is currently (which isn’t clear).
10/2017 COJ - turned it down because it was so low level than my then-private sector job
3/2018 - came back with more reasonable level (I was an IT Senior PM/IT Manager at the time)
3/2018 - paperwork turned in
4/2018 met with BI Investigator
7/2018 - BI interview/psych and poly (said I passed)
7/2018 - additional paperwork requested was sent in
12/2018 - paperwork sent in July was re-requested (apparently lost) so I re-sent it
3/2019 - vague denial letter
