AIES Fingerprints

Use digital fingerprints when possible! - eFP Capture Submission memo

When only hardcopy fingerprints are available, please use the following Guidelines for Completing Fingerprint Cards.

In an effort to improve the timeliness of investigation submissions for our customers, hard copy fingerprint (FP) cards will be sent directly to the PSI-CoE for processing. OPM will mail a copy of the fingerprint results back to the submitting organization's Security Office Identifier (SOI) address on file. The FP results can assist organizations in their interim suitability/security determination process.

The PSI-CoE will also accept the hard copy FP cards for childcare requests and submit all required documentation in one package to OPM for childcare requests.
