Frequently Asked Questions Investigations

I am not finding a copy of my latest Standard Form (SF86, SF85P, or SF85). How can I get another electronic copy?

In e-QIP, your sponsoring agency has the ability to grant you access to your Standard Forms previously filled out in e-QIP. Once your agency grants you access to your previous forms, you have 20 days to login and retrieve them. You will login with the same username and password you used to fill out your forms in e-QIP. If it is the first time accessing e-QIP since June 24, 2012 you will need to register and create a username and password first. Register by clicking the "Register for Username and Password" button on the right-hand side of the screen, inputting your Social Security Number (SSN) or request ID if you do not have a SSN, answering default Golden Questions, creating a username and password and creating Challenge Questions. Username and password will be all that is needed to login after initial registration.

Alternatively, if you are seeking an electronic copy of a previously completed standard form application that you did not fill out in e-QIP, or an agency already  gave you access to your forms in e-QIP but you need additional information, then you should submit a request to the FIS Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOI/PA) office.   Details about submitting a request to FIS FOI/PA are available at: http://www.opm.gov/investigations/requesting-investigation-copies/federal-applicants-employees-or-contractors/.
