If the background check is denied at tier1 level, does the contractor company know why or are they just informed that the prospective employee failed? Likewise does the hiring manager know the specifics? Thank you for your support!

If it is denied at Tier 1, the Security Officer should be told why to you can respond (mistakes can happen). But if you fail and the reason is true, then I'd suggest you not consider working anywhere near a government situation (as a civil servant, as a contractor with the gov, etc) for a long time and find ways to clean up your situation so 10 years from now it isn't an issue.

Is that true? I don't think the security office gets the details, just that a denial (or a Statement of Reasons, SOR, for a denial) is coming.

That's what I meant...if denied, you will be told so you can respond. (my agency's adjudicators are in my building and they have said, "we will tell you why, so you can respond with information to mitigate or evidence to show it was based on false info, such as ID theft you've reported or they have the wrong middle name, etc").

You can get the Certificate of Investigation or you can get DISS file showing denial and what part of 13 suitability guidelines the person failed. Security manager can also file FOIA to see why.

What is the security manager? I was inquiring about the contractor company knowing the details as opposed to just a notice of denial

You may be worrying a bit too much. Security Manager is person that tracks personnel within his unit or agency. Security Managwr in contract company is a FSO. Facility Securiry Officer. Companies have them to maintain which employee has a clearance and who needs to initiate a security clearance or suitability.

Good idea is to google contracting and security clearances.
