It depends on the position’s classification. For a non-sensitive position (Type of “security clearance” should be identified in the job announcement), you’ll be asked to account for the last 5 years of your life by completing an SF85 via e-QIP. In addition to the SF85, you may be asked to fill out an OF306, which spans 7 years. Hope this helps!
