NOAA Civil Rights Office


EEO Counseling

The Federal EEO complaint process consists of the pre-complaint process (informal process) in which an individual (employee, former employee, or applicant for employment) makes the initial contact with the NOAA Civil Rights Office (CRO). Such individuals must contact the CRO within 45 calendar days of the alleged discriminatory event, or within 45 calendar days of becoming aware of the alleged discriminatory event.

If an individual believes he/she has been discriminated against and wishes to file an EEO complaint of discrimination, they must first begin with the pre-complaint process by contacting the NOAA Civil Rights Office at:

Building SSMC4, Suite 7500
1305 East-West Highway
Silver Spring, MD 20910

CRO Phone and Fax Numbers
Voice: 301-713-0500 or 1-800-452-6728 Fax: 301-713-0983
