e-QIP Application Web Based Training


The e-QIP Initiator serves as the applicant's main point of contact during the investigation request process.

If you are the Initiator, you are responsible for initiating the applicant's investigation request, selecting the appropriate form, completing the Agency Use Block section, and monitoring the applicant's timely completion of the Standard Form. You may also need to cancel investigation requests if, for example, the applicant takes a job elsewhere.
