Decision Makers shall not maintain any documentation related to the reasonable accommodations process in an employee’s official personnel file or an applicant’s interview file.

5.2.1 ODEO shall prepare an annual report no later than October 31st of each calendar year, containing the following information, presented in the aggregate:

a. The number and type of reasonable accommodations, by job type, that have been requested by job applicants in the Agency’s application process and whether those requests have been granted or denied;

b. The number and type of reasonable accommodations, by job type, requested by employees;

c. The number and type of reasonable accommodations approved, by job type, and the number of reasonable accommodations, by job type, that have been denied;

5.2.2 In addition, the report shall provide a qualitative assessment of the reasonable accommodation program, including any recommendations for improvement of NASA's reasonable accommodation policies and procedures to be utilized in NASA EEO strategic planning, such as the Model EEO Plan. Qualitative assessment may include analysis and recommendations based on such factors as:

a. Focus groups of individuals who have participated in the process, to learn more about their experiences with and perceptions of the process.

b. Responses to relevant questions on the EO Functional Review Customer Satisfaction Survey and the Diversity and Inclusion Assessment Survey.

c. Course evaluations of reasonable accommodation training.

d. Reporting of analytics (e.g., number of page views) for online technical assistance and training tools relating to the provision of reasonable accommodations.
