Welcome to the NOAA Electronic forms website. The electronic forms in this site are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Non-electronic NOAA forms are continually added as they become fillable.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR USING THIS SITE
You must have Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader version 7.0 to fill and print an e-form
Printing Hints: If you have Acrobat configured as a web browser plug-in, you can fill out and print the form within your browser. If you print out a form and it doesn't print completely, print again changing the print settings to "fit to page." If you are printing a legal size form, please be sure to click on printer properties and change your paper options for legal size paper and landscape orientation.
Electronic Signatures: Although Adobe Acrobat supports its own plug-in and third party electronic signature Certificate Authority software solutions, the forms on this web site are not designed to implement digital signatures. When DoC/NOAA policy is officially issued, the NOAA forms maintained on this web site will be re-designed to be in compliance with it.
If you have trouble printing any of the forms, please consult your organization's Help Desk. Make sure you read "How to Fill Out a Form." The FAQs and instructions linked from this site are the result of an overall effort by the DoC Electronic Forms Affinity Group to make available to DoC employees CD electronic forms as PDF files.
The Department's Electronic Signature (ES)/Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Affinity Group (AG) is tasked to make recommendations and provide advice to the CIO Council and Bureau Administrative Offices with respect to policy, procedures, standards, and payoff as they relate to the use of electronic signature/PKI throughout the Department. NOAA's Messaging Implementation Team (MIT)/PKI Working Group, some of whose members share membership with the DoC ES/PKI AG, are currently working with the Department and at the NOAA level to accomplish these goals.
