The Office of Personnel Management, Federal Investigative Services (OPM-FIS) is proud to offer new training and guidance to assist customer agencies in transitioning to the newly revised Standard Form (SF) 86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions, in e-QIP. Agencies' implementation of the 2010 SF 86 in e-QIP will be phased. After final testing and production validation, the revised SF 86 will be available to other investigation service providers by the end of the month. OPM will allow its customer agencies to begin using the revised SF 86 in e-QIP beginning in February 2011 on a phased schedule.

Training will begin January 4th, 2011 and continue throughout the month of January.
