Background Investigation Information

Background Investigation Information
for USNA Faculty

As you prepare to complete your Background Investigation form (SF86), here are two links you may find useful:

  1. Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing (e-QIP) system: This is the official link to the e-QIP application.  You will receive an e-mail from the USNA Security Office with directions to complete your SF86.  The e-mail should be from a address, and not some external location.  If you'd just like to be sure that what you're being asked to click on is truly the official e-QIP site, you can use the link above rather relying on the link provided in the e-mail.  If you receive an e-mail that looks official, but you have suspicions about it's authenticity, please contact Jennifer Rivera by phone at x3-5682
  2. Copy of a blank SF86: This is a link to a blank copy of an SF86.  You cannot use this form to submit your formal SF86 (you must use the e-QIP application described above), but having this blank form will give you a sense for what kinds of information you'll need to collect before you log on to e-QIP.
