I’m applying to a 3 letter IC agency - TS/SCI. My timeline has been: applied in July 2017, Interviewed November 2017, COE + SF86 January 2018, Med/Poly/Psych Eval July 2018 - no issues. All standard according to everywhere I looked thus far. However since then, nothing happened. References were not called, no record of credit pulled (though they had my credit report in the post psych interview).
Here’s where I need your knowledge: I believe my case is ‘complicated’: I naturalized in 2017, my wife is on a GC. Both from South America from a country with no bad blood with the US. No govt relatives, no frequent visits, no using foreign passport or lingering ties abroad besides immediate family, no drugs or unpaid debt. I lived in many addresses on both east and west coast given my high tech job, that’s about it.
So far nothing moved - there’s zero indication that the SSBI even started (no one got a call, wife wasn’t contacted or poly’ed). What to do now? I read a lot about contacting your Congress Rep. (my own or a rep with better IC ties - like being on the CIA committee?) and how do I go about that? Email and request a meeting without revealing details?
Thanks for your patience, I know there are similar stories here. Seems like they are losing a lot. I lost some of my enthusiasm for the position. I keep getting raises, making the gap between my offer and what I currently make ever greater. There’s some emotional strain given I can’t make definite plans or investments given the wait, and I can’t be 100% emotionally committed on my current job either.
