Representation In DOHA And DOD CAF Matters

The 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission made changes to the way that proposed security clearance matters would proceed for DOD contractors.

The changes resulted in all notices regarding security clearance denials or revocations for DOD coming from the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudications Facility (known as DoD CAF), rather than the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA), which used to send out notices to DOD contractors. The DOHA is still the agency that holds hearings on security clearance matters for DOD contractors, but the initial proposed security clearance denial or revocation notice (SOR) comes from DoD CAF.

Why You Need To Take DOHA Cases Seriously

In these cases, the individual contractor who applies for security clearance has encountered some sort of problem that threatens the approval of the clearance, or has behaved in some manner that could result in the loss of a clearance they already hold. The DOHA process provides the individual with an opportunity to contest the proposed denial or revocation of clearance.

The denial or loss of security clearance can many times mean the loss of the person's employment. If you receive a DOD CAF notice, you need to take immediate action to ensure that you are doing everything you can to protect your livelihood.
