I’ve accepted a Contingent Offer of employment February 2019, and after 3 months of waiting and asking, my security clearance officer finally sent me an email with the link and instructions for e-QIP. I am waiting for Secret Clearance before I can begin working.
I submitted the e-QIP and a month later, she told me that she submitted it to the OPM May 31st, of last year (2019)
My officer has been very dodgy with answering emails / phone calls I occasionally make every month or so (as requested by the contractor and by my officer to make sure things are on track).
Back in November she said she was unable to access any of her files due to the switch that was being made in October from the OPM to the DoD, and she wanted to resubmit my e-QIP. So, I filled it out once again and submitted it. To which, she said was sent “right away.”
4~ weeks ago she gave me a similar story. She’s unable to check any of her cases because of “information being moved.” Unless I missed an article, there should be no reason she can’t do her job, for the past month I have tried to contact her.
It has been 243 days since May 31st 2019. I was told several times it would take “about 120 days” for my case to be opened. To this day, I have yet to be told my case has even been OPENED, never mind reviewed.
I am currently unemployed and desperately need to start working, but was told I should start this job by December / January. I have been unable to land a “normal job” because every employer since February asks if I have any other job obligations / potentials, and I have to answer with “This job I was told I’d start around July” …then “December…” and now???" I am just at a loss of what to do.
