Reasonable Accommodations & Accessibility

NSA's Reasonable Accommodation program ensures all employees, including those with disabilities, have an equal opportunity to reach their highest potential and contribute fully to mission. We balance employee need and mission requirement to provide a wide array of accommodations that enable our employees to successfully perform the essential duties of their position. This might include anything from sit/stand desks to assistive technology and ASL interpreters.

If you require reasonable accommodations during your application process, please notify your NSA Recruiter. Your Recruiter will work with NSA's Office of Reasonable Accommodations and Accessibility (ORAA) on your accommodation request. An ORAA Reasonable Accommodations Manager may ask that you provide documentation to support your request. All information submitted to support an accommodation request is kept confidential and your privacy rights are protected.

NSA's Office of Reasonable Accommodations and Accessibility (ORAA) manages the reasonable accommodations process. NSA is required to provide a workplace accommodation for qualified applicants with a disability within the meaning of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as Amended.
