Why are you being asked to complete this form?
We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to
provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with
disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward
having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with
disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if
they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a
person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees
to update their information at least every five years.
Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is
voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer
will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting
officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions.
Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way,
regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For
more information about this form or the equal employment
obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the
