I’m filling out an eQip form for a public trust and wondering
if PI’s typically review your past eQip forms completed for other agencies that were for other public trusts investigations

I'm sure they will review at least the most recent forms you filled out before the current set.

I am trying to remember if I have ever been asked to explain a discrepancy regarding old forms and nothing is coming to mind. But I expect that if the investigator finds anything suspicious then they can certainly get access to the older forms as well.

Yes. They'll typically review the prior form and compare it to the new one. Mostly I suppose, in my cynical view, to "find something" to justify their existence. Unless it's some major problem, the truth usually renders it no big deal. I had left off my most recent SF-85 that I had once worked part-time (self-employed) for a few months on my most recent one. I basically had forgotten about it and failed to transfer it over from the prior form. Not a big deal. This was on a Tier 4 full BI. If you have a copy of your prior SF-85 or 86 (which you should) it does help prevent questions if the history of things is identical.

The process reviews your old submissions and investigations. This is not to make employment available for the clerks that review the past cases.
-
The discrepancies are addressed if needed. The discrepancies can have a huge impact on the outcome of your current investigation, or little impact. This depends on discrepancy.

Each Tier is a distinctly different investigation. The higher the Tier, the more intense and labor intensive. Omitting that residence or employment from your Tier 4 or Tier 5 delays your case. If any issues (arrest, termination, etc) are found while working your "forgotten" required responses immediately flags you as a personal conduct concern.

Take the time to fill out the forms correctly and honestly.
*DISCLAIMER*Correctly filling out your security forms will not guarantee you a clearance in 3 months BUT be sloppy and your case will be in the field a heck of a lot longer, guaranteed.

And by the way, for anyone reading this who needs to update their forms for a new clearance, be sure to take a moment and delete any old residence or employment records that are no longer within scope. I left them in there one year (scared it would mess things up) and the investigator said if it is on the form, they have to verify it.
