I and several others have received favorable determinations for our SSBI. But some companies have halted new hire training for the NBIB contract. For those of us who feel stuck but want to continue in the field or at least use the investigation, we waited months for. What are possible future steps one can take with an active SSBI?
I’m aware an SSBI is not a clearance but I have been informed it is usually the precursor to a TS. I heard the SSBI is the longest and or most difficult part of the clearance process? So if one has the first part completed but not the latter. Where do they stand? Are they in a better position to be picked up by a contractor who requires clearance? Does it make no difference at all? Any information or opinion is really appreciated.
