Received a letter stating I was “unfavorably adjudicated” and decision was made to "“discontinue the personnel security process” “the basis for discontinuation was not otherwise sufficiently mitigated to allow me to proceed through the hiring process”.
This is not the letter and wording that I was expecting for a denial. I have not received a SOR and have not had any response for a FOIA. Agency is ATF for a TS/SCI. I have an idea what the issues are, and they are all fixable. My question is, does this look like a denial? Do all denials owe you a SOR and opportunity to appeal? Or is this some legal way of not technically denying my clearance so that I can’t appeal?
I have another offer for another agency that requires a TS/SCI. What should I do?
