1USPHS Commissioned Corps electronic Officer Personnel Folder (eOPF) Career Planning and PreparationLCDR Camille P. HawkinsCDR Cheryl A. Wiseman
2What is the eOPF?The electronic Official Personnel Folder (eOPF) includes documents such as your Commissioned Officer’s Effectiveness Reports (COERS), Promotion Report (PIR), Curriculum Vitae (CV), licensure validation, and educational information.
3What is the eOPF?... Secure access to PHS officer file 24/7 Log in requiredMay grant temporary privileges to mentor and othersEach PHS officer has one!
4Why keep it up to date? Reviewed by board for competitive promotion Reviewed by board for non-competitive promotionReviewed for AssimilationReviewed for AwardsA properly maintained CV provides documentation of your performance and career development
5Components of the eOPF Blue Section – OCCO Letter of Reprimand RebuttalsCOERSROS (check that it is there)OS (officer faxes)OCCO adds documents to this section. Officers should do a COER each year. If there is a problem with completing the COER – may enlist assist of the CC liaison. This section is used during the promotion boards.
6Components of the eOPF Green Section – Officer Responsibility Realtime PIRCVLicensure/CredentialsAwards (PHS/NonPHS)Continuing Ed (CME, Advanced Degrees, Medical courses (BLS/ACLS), Some leadership courses, other training (CMBC))Special SkillsOutside ActivitiesPHS SupportThe officer updates most of this section of the eOPF. The boards see and use this section for promotion. Some areas are updated by OCCO (lic and awards and sometimes letters of thanks are added by others) CV should be updated when up for promotion/assimilation and at duty station changes. Otherwise good rule of thumb is annually. Licensure/certifications must be sent to the license fax line Once cleared they will be sent to eOPF. PHS awards are added by awards coordinator. Send letters of thanks, appreciation, appointment to activities (assoc recruiter). Outside activities include but are not limited to church activities, little league, volunteer work at shelters, scouts, karate, guitar…I have seen people put almost anything. However, I recommend keeping it to value added activities or community enrichment.
