I got a job with XScion a small company in McLean, VA. They assigned me to their client UNOS in Richmond, VA. For this position I need a public trust. I’ve had a public trust previously and last year got an interim secrete clearance (the project was canceled before my final clearance came through).
I was told last Friday that I didn’t pass the background investigation performed by HRSA.
UNOS won’t tell anyone at XScion anything as to why I failed. The only thing different than when I got my interim clearance was an issue this month where I had an outstanding fine with the for an expired registration and I knew about. I called the court after th case and they said it may take a week to get the letter. It slipped my mind and The I got a letter from the VA DMV the first on July stating my license was suspended on the 15th due to lack of payment. That was my only notice and the letter was postmark June 28th. I called the court right away and paid the fine. I called the DMV right away but their system didn’t show the fine as being paid. I called back a few days later and it was updated.
The agent got my payment information and everything and an announcement came over the PA saying there was a security breach in the building and eveyone had to leave. Theady said she would make a not in my account and processes it and then call me with the confirmation. She never did so a few days later I call back and finally get through the process and a cleared fax.
Of course this was all going on during the background investigation.
I don’t know why I didn’t pass the background investigation. I tried calling HRSA and they had no clue what I was talking about.
UNOS won’t give me their contact their.
I turned down to other better paying full time jobs for this position because UNOS handles organ donor matching and their system is woefully outdated. I don’t even live near Richmond so I would have to stay there during the week.
I thought I was doing a good thing for my fellow Americans at least it did feel good.
What can I do?
- I don’t know why I failed.
- I don’t know who to call.
- I know pretty much nothing about the clearance process except what I read on here.
I am going to loose this job and be unemployed and I don’t even know why. If it was the DMV issue I took care of it.
I feel helpless with no information and no one to call and could really use some help here. I am willing to pay someone to help me understand what my options are and some guidance on what to do.
I am thankful this site exists!
"You failed…really what did I fail? We can’t tell you that. Then how do you know I was at fault? We can’t tell you that either. What can you tell me?
Is this a Seinfeld episode?
