NARA's St. Louis - Civilian National Personnel Record Center , MO
National Archives and Records Administration
CPR houses the Official Personnel Folders (OPF) and Employee Medical Folders (EMF) of separated Federal civilian employees. CPR also houses personnel documents that date back to the mid-nineteenth century, although the bulk of the collection covers the period from 1900 to present. The medical records of military family members treated at Army, Air Force and Coast Guard medical facilities are also stored here. How do I get information from my civilian personnel records?
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 the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Only limited types of information from the records are releasable to non-authorized users.
