Long story, so please bear with me.
In March 2019, I accepted a CJO with a three letter agency. In October 2019, I received a letter from them stating that my conditional offer had been rescinded due to “alcohol abuse.” I have never had any legal or personal problems with alcohol, so how they arrived at this conclusion is beyond me. It seemed like an absurdly bogus finding (still does) and I vehemently disagreed with their determination, so I filed an appeal. The appeal was unfortunately unsuccessful. I filed a Privacy Act request several months after this occurred but of course, in typical government fashion, they have not yet replied to me.
I recently accepted another offer with a different agency (redemption!). My SF86 and fingerprints have been submitted (they haven’t told me if I will need to undergo another polygraph since I passed my previous one and it was administered less than two years ago), so I am now just waiting to be contacted for my subject interview. As long as I am transparent about the previous suitability issue, do you think it will pose a problem for me? As I said, I have no idea how this determination was made as my Privacy Act request has not been returned.
If anyone has any insight, I would appreciate it.
