Is clearance the problem, or the ability to obtain clearance due to
something in their background?  If your work requires it, you should have
some recourse for applicants to obtain the required clearance, no?

My understanding is that while primary and subcontractor companies can
put people in the sponsoring organization's clearance granting queue,
it takes so long to get someone through the queue that for high-level
positions they essentially make having the clearance already a
prerequisite.

Things have gotten a lot better than they used to be.  My
understanding is that these days a DoD collateral TS is routinely
completed in < 6 months.
