Air Force migrates civilian personnel records to OPM

The Air Force has migrated Air Force employee electronic official personnel folders to the Office of Personnel Management eOPF version, Air Force Personnel Center officials said April 2.

The eOPF is a secure, digitized version of a hardcopy personnel folder that contains official human resource records for each federal employee. The system enhances portability of civilian HR records and increases employee awareness and accountability through email notifications of personnel actions, said Sal Lara, AFPC Civilian Future Operations Branch personnel systems project officer.

The eOPF system was developed to provide electronic official personnel files for all federal agencies and to simplify how employees access their own official personnel folders. It includes human resources records and documents related to federal civilian employees.

For Air Force civilian employees, AFPC will continue to manage personnel information, but the eOPF database will be controlled by OPM.

There are significant financial savings and other efficiencies inherent in the change, said Lara.

Migration to the OPM eOPF allows information to be transferred electronically between agencies and will provide employees with continuous electronic access to their records. It will also accelerate access to the OPF for new employees, and all employees will get email notifications when documents are added to the folders. Major command staff will be able to view OPFs across all the bases within their command, and finally the OPM eOPF reduces the need to physically store, print and mail OPFs between agencies resulting in significant savings.

The migration will affect more than 153,000 civilian employees, and about 14 million documents.

Although all civilians are affected, impact will be minimal,î said Lara. ìThe only difference between accessing an OPF then and now will be that OPM is hosting the OPF. To ensure all employees can easily access their file, weíve sent an email to all civilian personnel with the website link and instructions on how to create their user account.
