Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) has released Federal Investigations Notice (FIN) 20-01 regarding the implementation of the updated Standard Form 85P (SF85P), December 2017 version. The last time this form received an update was September 1995.
The updated SF85P will include the questions found on the “Additional Questions for Moderate Risk Positions - Branching” supplemental form, eliminating the need for utilizing the SF85P Supplemental form.
Applicants needing a Tier 2 investigation will no longer have to fill out the SF85P supplemental form.
Previously, DCSA had planned to deploy the updated form in January 2020. The updated SF85P should be available Monday morning.
