REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION PROCEDURES
4 REQUESTING AN ACCOMMODATION
||Employee - Requests made by an employee for reasonable accommodation under these procedures may be made orally or in writing to his/her immediate or first line supervisor, division head, Agency or Mission Area DEPM. Requests may also be made to any agency official proposing to take a performance or conduct action. The request should outline
the kind of accommodation requested, if known.
||Applicant for employment - Requests made by an applicant for reasonable accommodation under these procedures may be made orally or in writing to the personnel office to which he/she is applying. This request should identify the accommodation needed, if known. Although an applicant with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation at any time during the application process, the applicant should, to the greatest extent possible, make the request as soon as he/she is aware of a barrier in the process. Applicants with a disability contacted for an interview, shall be asked, "is an accommodation needed for the interview?" and if the answer is "yes", then shall be asked, "what type of accommodation?" Accommodation for the interview shall be the responsibility of the interviewing official.
||Family member, health professional, immediate supervisor or other representative - Requests made by such a person on behalf of an employee or applicant shall go to the same
person to whom the employee or applicant would make the request. The request may be oral or in writing.
