The U.S. Air Force has transferred electronic official personnel files of its civilian employees to a digital storage system run by the Office of Personnel Management.
OPM built its own version of the eOPF for agencies to electronically transfer data between each other and aims to let employees access their own records, the Air Force Personnel Center said Tuesday.
More than 153,000 civilian employees and about 14 million documents are affected by the transfer.
“The only difference between accessing an OPF then and now will be that OPM is hosting the OPF,” said Sal Lara, project officer of AFPC civilian future operations branch personnel systems.
The AFPC will still manage the Air Force civilian employee personnel records and the OPM will oversee the eOPF database.
Federal employees can view their eOPFs in all bases under their command as well, the Air Force said.
Lara said employees would get email notifications when new documents add to the folders.
