Services - Completing your Online e-QIP
Required Background Investigation Forms

 As part of the background investigation process, you may be required to complete one or more of the following forms:

  • OF-306 Declaration for Federal Employment (new federal applicants must submit this form in the USA Staffing Onboarding Manager System)

    Note: Other employees and contractors may complete the OF-306 as part of their e-QIP attachments or they can come to the DPSAC main office in Building 31, Room 1B03 and complete the form on our new OF-306 Kiosk. This convenient workstation allows individuals to electronically complete and submit their required OF-306 form directly to DPSAC. The Kiosk is easy to use and contains built-in logic to help users avoid common errors when completing the form.

    DPSAC has published a Kiosk User Guide that includes general information about the Kiosk, who can use it, where the station is located and hours of operation.
