  • DOS/DSS Security Protective Specialist

    The last opening for this position was November 2014. Many of us, including myself, were selected from the BEX and completed Medical/ Security. During the process of our investigations OPM was breached and delayed clearances. The class date was September 8th 2015. However, the class was not full and many vacancies are still open for SPS. According to various SPS Candidates, their handlers have advised that an additional class is possible in January. Currently, my handler with DOS has stated that this is a possibility and I wanted to reach out to the other SPS candidates that are currently in this same situation.

          If he read that in the other thread......not sure why he is posting this..... as it sounds like they are a done deal and S/A's are picking up the jobs....

            Yes, I read that. But it does not answer my question. I applied to the last opening in 2014, was referred, did my BEX in January, was given my COE, obtained my medical UWA clearance in February, and background investigation began, then OPM was breached, then their was a 90 day delay on clearances. Now, the last class ever was suppose to be September 8th. That class started with a few of the SPS candidates, but left the program extremely short staffed, this program is being phased out in 2021. The appointments as SPS are five years long, so the SA's are not taking over the high threat posts' duties as an SPS anytime soon. So, this brings me back to the "extremely short staffed' part. DSS wants to run an additional SPS class to get the remaining candidates whose clearances were backed up due to the OPM breach. The rumor from DS/HR is January. This is where my question starts: who knows any other information about the additional SPS class?

            I know the program is going away, I have known that since February when an internal memo signed by the AS of DS stated the program was being terminated in 2021.

                I asked our DSS LNO and he thought everything was a done deal as well.....and he's hearing that from his sources at HQ.

                He did say he'd send an email back for me to see if he could get any updated info.....

                Best I can come up with ....
