Hi, I’m a contractor and I recently received my initial disapproval and SOR from CIA.
With the help of attorney, I was able to successfully deny all their allegations they had on SOR and sent it out this morning.
To my knowledge, even if the decision was overturned, I still need to be sponsored to receive the clearance. Not sure how this could be possible on contractor. When I received disapproval, I immediately have to find a new team that doesn’t require the clearance. I can ask for additional time so I can stay a bit longer until I get this sorted out, but I’ve seen post from this forum that even initial adjudicator hearing from CIA can take up to a year! (Not even appeal stage, just personal hearing).
I was wondering if there is anyone in this forum who went through this process and can provide some timeline for me? Most posts here are about DOD CAF or DOHA and not much from CIA.
How long would it be until I hear back for my SOR response from CIA?
