  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration

  • Notification Requirements Regarding Findings of Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Other Forms of Harassment, or Sexual Assault

    AGENCY: National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

    ACTION: New reporting requirement for discrimination, sexual or other forms of harassment, or sexual assault; request for comments.


    SUMMARY: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is soliciting public comment on the agency's proposed implementation of new reporting requirements regarding discrimination and harassment among recipients of NASA financial assistance. The many hundreds of U.S. institutions of higher education and other organizations that receive NASA funds are responsible for fully investigating complaints and for compliance with federal non-discrimination laws, regulations, and executive orders. The implementation of new reporting requirements is necessary as NASA seeks to help ensure research environments to which the Agency provides funding are free from discrimination, including harassment, sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, and sexual assault. Additionally, NASA is taking this action to bolster our policies, guidelines, and communications. The intended effect of this action is, first, to better ensure that organizations funded by NASA clearly understand expectations and requirements. In addition, NASA seeks to ensure that recipients of grants and cooperative agreements respond promptly and appropriately to instances of discrimination, sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, and sexual assault.

    DATES: Comments must be received by August 9, 2019.

    ADDRESSES: Comments should be addressed to National Space and Aeronautics Administration Headquarters, 300 E Street SW, Rm. 6O87, Washington, DC 20546 or sent by email to civilrightsinfo@nasa.gov; Phone Number: 202-358-2180, Fax Number: 202-358-3336. We encourage respondents to submit comments electronically to ensure timely receipt. We cannot guarantee that comments mailed will be received before the comment closing date. Please include "Reporting Requirement Regarding Findings of Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, other Forms of Harassment, or Sexual Assault" in the subject line of the email message; please also include the full body of your comments in the text of the message and as an attachment. Include your name, title, organization, postal address, telephone number, and email address in your message.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard N. Reback, email: civilrightsinfo@nasa.gov; telephone (202) 358-2180.
