9/25/2012 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Officials at the Air Force Personnel Center project the migration of the Air Force version of each employee's electronic Official Personnel Folder to the Office of Personnel Management's government-wide eOPF version will take place in November.
The eOPF is a digitized version of a hardcopy personnel folder that contains official human resource records for each federal employee.
Officials said the system enhances portability of civilian human relations records and increases employee awareness and accountability through email notifications of personnel actions.
"The OPM eOPF provides ease of access to individual personnel records of Air Force civilian employees while protecting and securing the information contained in those records," said Sal Lara, AFPC's Civilian Future Operations Branch personnel systems project officer. "The OPM eOPF is a Web application that is very similar to what civilian employees use today, and we anticipate a seamless migration to OPM."
The migration includes more than 152,000 electronic personnel records with about 14 million documents. AFPC will continue to manage civilian personnel information, but OPM will control the eOPF database.
More information about the eOPF migration will be available on the myPers website at http://mypers.af.mil.
