National Personnel Records Center - Civilian

The NPRC, CPR stores official personnel folders (OPFs) of former civilian employees from most Federal agencies world-wide. The records date from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. OPFs are retired to the center within 120 days after separation from Federal employment. Most civilian personnel records held at NPRC are the legal responsibility of the system under which they were created, that agency is responsible for protecting the individual privacy of the living subjects of personnel records under the Privacy Act of 1974 (P. L. 93-579). Consequently, access to all stored records is regulated by the authority of the creating agency, for example, OPFs and EMFs are strictly regulated by OPM. Only limited types of information from the records are releasable to non-authorized users. See for information on requesting information from the Center.
