The Standard Form (SF) 86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions, is the form used by military personnel, government contractors, and government employees when applying for confidential, secret, or top secret security clearance. Whether you are seeking security clearance from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) or other federal agencies, the SF86 is one of the most integral parts of the clearance process. As our security clearance attorneys have predicated our practice on a personalized approach and on helping our clients meticulously prepare their clearance applications, you can confident that, should you choose to work with McCormack & McCormack, you will have the assistance you need to maximize your chances of obtaining the clearance you need.
The clearance questionnaire can be found on the website of the federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The OPM is the agency responsible for reviewing and processing the SF86. The form is quite lengthy and requires applicants to supply a great deal of information. By working with an attorney from our firm, you can ensure that you have a solid understanding of the requirements that must be met and that no errors or mistakes that can jeopardize your clearance are made.
As part of the overall clearance process, the SF86 is yet another example of the essential need for intense preparation. Taking the time to complete this form correctly can save you a great deal of time and misfortune later on, and can help you in becoming one step closer to gaining security clearance. As the document is rife with complexities and may require applicants to supply documents pertaining to various components of the questionnaire, it is widely advised that you retain legal counsel when preparing your SF86
