I’ve been a contingent hire at company A, a DoD contractor, pending a successful T-5 investigation. I recently received word that my investigation was favorably adjudicated and my TS clearance is all set. While I was a contingent at company A, I applied and took a job at company B.
I notified company A of this when I took the job and they sad that’s fine, you can work there and we’ll keep you on the bench until your TS comes in.
The original agreement I signed with company A was non-binding, and since my clearance has come in, I’m having second thoughts about fully committing to the job at company A because I really like working for company B.
If I decide to not take the job with company A, would my investigation still be current for the usual 2 years such that I could possibly take a job with another DoD contractor? Or would I have to go through the whole process again?
