Was working in commercial industry (Company A). Received a ‘conditional offer’ from a DoD contractor (Company B) in Jan 2018 who summited for my clearance in Feb 2018 (on condition that i get my ‘secret’ clearance). Later in 2018, started working with another DoD contractor ‘Company C’ who did not need clearance to start with. They didnt have any program to tie ‘own my clearance in JPASS’. However with contingent offer from ‘Company B’ my investigation is still open. Fast forward July 2019 get a call from BI, we schedule interview day/time. Then today I get a call from BI, saying how come you never started with ‘Company B’ and ‘Company C’ doesnt still own your clearance. To which I mentioned that ‘Company B’ offered me conditional offer and it still exist based on my clearance approval. But he kept insisting that, whos gonna pay for your clearance and why has ‘Company C’ not picked up your clearance. BI even spoke to my Company C FSO and FSO requested him to continue with the investigation while they figure out the way to own the clearance and he agreed to hold onto my paperwork.
In reality my current ‘Company C’ doesnt have any contract to tie my clearance too.
I do have two other verbal/conditional offer by bigger defense contractor who were willing to bring me on board 2months ago and take ownership of the clearance. Not sure what to do to keep my investigation moving. Should I contact these companies or should I try to go back to ‘Company B’ who originally sponsored?
I have waited 1yr 5months to get to subject interview stage and dont want my clearance to stop.
