@willam-henderson there have been developments since this post.
Pretext— I have been a federal contractor with a DoD clearance held since 2009. That is, until 22 February 2018 when DoD CAF abruptly denied me clearance, without an ongoing reinvestigation or PR. On 07 February 2018, I had called Scattered Castle (SC) to help with certain certificates on JWICS. The person over the phone felt a need to be alarmed after seeing the CIA 2015 denial of clearance. I explained to him, I had informed all whom it concerned before getting on board on the contract with the DoD. Yet, within hours I was escorted off the building. Regarding the CIA denial of clearance; I received a SOR after applying for a contracting position with them. Admittedly, I felt intimidated and defeated. In retrospect, and needless to say, I regret not appealing within the deadline. Legal experts who have read the respective SOR called it ridiculous. It was based on guideline B; foreign influence.
DoD CAF disclosed to my FSO on 19 March 2018 that they will NOT issue a SOR based on “reciprocity with the CIA SOR issued in 2015” and suggested appealing directly with CIA, knowing all too well that ship has sailed. Their response was availed only after spamming with email/letters because per policy DoD CAF would only speak to the FSO, whereas, my FSO says it is between me and the USG and wanted me to patiently wait for at least 45 days before calling him.
I understand with certain exceptions, a security clearance granted by one agency may be accepted by other agencies by reciprocity. However, clearance denials are not accepted as "reciprocity", though, an agency may use derogatory information obtained from another agency to initiate a denial or revocation. They are required to provide me my due process. While working for the DoD, they would have to revoke my active clearance - not deny it. Even if they revoked it then they are required to provide me my due process - which requires the SOR and an opportunity to appeal.
