Reapplication for Clearance Successfully Accepted

SOUTHEAST – Client Defense Contractor previously had clearance revoked for failure to respond to a Statement of Reasons (SOR) issue due to 14 accounts in arrears under Adjudicative Guideline F – Financial Considerations.  After waiting required mandatory minimum of one–year before being eligible to be considered for a clearance, our client was sponsored for a clearance and, after submitting his SF86 was required to submit a package to the Director, Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) demonstrating that the concerns from the previously issued SOR had been mitigated.  Working with the client we were able to explain the circumstances that led to the financial concerns and that all accounts had been “resolved,” resulting in the reapplication being accepted and the client eligible for consideration of a clearance.
