Important Notice

  • The Bureau of Human Resources and the Office of Directives have created an online version of DS-174: Application for Employment as a Locally Employed Staff or Family Member. The new form replaces all older versions of the DS-174, which have expired. Posts are encouraged to update all links to point to the new online version.

    The online version allows applicants to fill out and save the form online using a web browser. Completed forms can be saved with the .FAR extension, the same as that used by e-Forms, and e-mailed to local Human Resources offices. Posts wishing to link to the online form rather than a PDF version should first check with their HR staff to ensure that they can open files with the .FAR extension. Posts unable to use the online version should link to the DS-174 in PDF form.
