The DD Form 2875 must be filled and signed electronically by all parties involved and then uploaded to your Army Training & Certification Tracking System (ATCTS). Once you have completed your portion, you will need to send it to your supervisor for approval by the Security Officer. The Information Management Office will no longer need any paper copies of certificates or forms as they are all now required to be of electronic format and associated with your online accounts.
