Are past eqip forms saved? For example, if I lied on one back when I was younger about drug use then I tell the truth about it now will that come up as lying on the form?
@happyman - 99.99% yes it will come back to haunt you.
It just depends on if that form is still available to access. Maybe someone here will have a concrete answer. Was an investigation done or did you just fill out a SF86 with no clearance granted?
All of your previous forms can be and are looked at. This is one of the many disclosures listed in your SF86/85P.
You can do an foia with opm to see which of your SF’s the government still has.
