e-QIP Application

Complete the e-QIP application.

You have been requested to obtain a security clearance consistent with your performance on a classified contract. Your security clearance and future access to classified national security information will be based on the results of a personnel security investigation conducted by the Federal Government. Here are the steps you need to take to begin the process:

  • Complete a Standard Form 86 (SF86) via the Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing (e-QIP) system.

  • Contact your local Facility Security Officer (FSO) found in your clearance email to:

    • Obtain your fingerprint cards (FD-258 format)

    • Verify your citizenship

    • Note: Please ensure you complete your fingerprint cards ASAP in order to not delay your security investigation.  We will not be able to submit your SF86 to DISCO until your fingerprint cards have been received.

Contact Security Services at 866-955-7242 option 7 should any questions arise.

Before continuing to the e-QIP site (link at bottom of page), read or print this information and review the tips to successfully complete the application process.
