The work I did was contracted through Technik to work as a Contract Close-Out Specialist onsite at Lackland AFB, Texas. I was employed five months before I received my DoD Clearance, by this time I was replaced by a more senior employee with over 30-years experience after her area was consolidated to relieve some employees. The Core Section Leader at Lackland decided to replace me with the more senior employee, which I was told happened to be a close friend.
Technik said there was nothing they could do about it and that they had no power to do anything whenever a government authority wished to replace someone since they're just the hiring agent. Technik's HR said the only recommendation they could offer was that I try speaking to the Core Section Leader in order to ask if she would reconsider allowing me to keep my job. I had never met the Core Section Leader in person, nor was I about to meet her in order to beg her to reconsider replacing me with her friend, so I decided it was best to move on.
