I accepted a job which requires DoD secret clearance. It’s been 17 months since eQip submission. For last 5 months, I’m stuck in adjudication. In March, my FSO submitted a RRU to DoDCAF. Their response was that they couldn’t adjudicate my investigation and they have transferred my case to their subsidiary for adjudication (DOHA??). Since then, DoDCAF is saying that my case is assigned to an adjudicator and is under review. This has been their response for last 3 months.
I reached out to Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) for status update. They are saying that they don’t have my case. I have requested copy of my background investigation from NBIB. My supervisor contact shows pending/undelivered. No one has reached out to me or any of my contacts since background investigation has been closed.
I’m incredibly frustrated with the pace and lack of transparency. My career is on hold. I have reached out to my senator’s office, they are also getting same response as my FSO. I’m not sure if I’m stuck in limbo. Is there anything else I can do other than wait? Can someone shed light on adjudication process.
