Have You Been Affected by BRAC 2005?
We are now half way into the Base Realignment and Closure rulings of 2005. Slated to be complete in 2011, thousands of jobs and a number of communities have been uprooted by the decisions. Have you been affected?
I would like to know how to request a re-open / reconsideration through the Sec of Defense. I have 4 years experience adjudication of clearances as a PSS 0080-11 with the Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals (DOHA). I had a alcohol incident in 2005, my clearance was denied in 2006. I have letters of recommendation from the DOHA Dept Counsel, PSD Chief and 20 or 30 other team leaders and co-workers.
Yes, this position is effected by the BRAC. As DOHA columbus is scheduled to move from Columbus, Ohio to Ft. Meade in 2010. So, no (or unlikelly) new positions will be advertised until then.
Several experienced contract investigators were unlawfully suspended for security concerns that were never proven, did not exist, which included a process to defame their characters; disrupting livelihoods; and were judged as a Federal Employees, which they were not.
A contract investigator fighting an unjust claim of being unsuitable by OPM FISD, after working for some time in the industry commited suicide.
The suspensions were conducted by Kathy Dillaman of OPM FISD, her staff to include those of USIS who were contracted by Dillaman to review the work of contract investigators.
Contracting Companies conducting backgrounds for OPM FISD and other agencies for years QUIT the OPM FISD contract (MSM & Omnisec) which caused a loss of over 4 thousand contract investigators and knowledgeable staff, because of OPM FISD abuse of powerâ€¦
Those wrongfully accused of unproven criminal acts, made every effort to obtain proper due process, but OPM Officials failed in every sense of the word to provide fair and impartial justice, and purposely disregarded all responses and correspondence. The offices included: Director of OPM; OPM Inspector General; OPM FISD and the OPM General Counsel.
Dillaman, Director of OPM FISD purposely delays all inquiries against her, and her office, by ignoring all requests and appeals, which in it self is the route to the delays of security backgrounds. All those of OPM FISD had deliberately ignored our Constitutional and Federal Laws, Regulations and OPM Notices. Even the OPM General Counselâ€™s Office to include the OPM IG ignored all responses for a request of due process.
OPM FISD continuous deception and delays, is an endless road. The lack of fair and impartial justice not given and abuse of power, by those within OPM is the real reason for the backlog. Those great man and woman, with extensive experience, that have been conducting security backgrounds for years, under contract, are leaving the business, because of Dillaman and her staffâ€™s unethical practices of abuse and injustice..
There are people in the business that can correct the backlog of security backgrounds in months, but because of the reputation of injustice and abuse of power, to include deception of OPM FISD, it will never be corrected.
This country depends on our soldiers and agents in the field, to protect us. Since the 80â€™s those soldiers and agents continued after retirement, as contract investigators, conducting Security Background Investigations for little money and got the job done, out of patriotism, and loyalty, but now we have those that are greedy, incompetent running our countryâ€™s security, like OPM FISD who has over 90% of the Security Background Investigative duties and canâ€™t get it done – we deserve everything we get, if this country and those in our government donâ€™t wakeup NOW.
