Subject:  EO - FY13 Civil Rights Semi-Annual Performance Report

Purpose.   To announce the FY13 Civil Rights Semi-Annual Performance Reports.

Expiration Date.   September 30, 2013

States are required to submit Civil Rights (CR) Semi-Annual Performance Reports.  The first submission which was due on January 14, 2013 consisted of the following:

  • FY2013 Outreach Plan
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Plan
  • Workforce Diversity snapshot
  • FY12 Program Participation Accomplishment Report

The attached EEO Plan includes items which ensure that we foster and maintain a work environment that provides equal opportunity for all persons without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, political beliefs, and marital or familial status.  Please take the time to read Juan’s policy statement within the document, which is directed to all employees.  Also, review the action items, some of which are directed to supervisors in regards to taking required training.

Supervisors should consider reviewing this plan during a staff meeting in the near future.  Please document such meeting in your Civil Rights Accomplishment log.

Contact.  Please direct any questions or comments relative to the EEO Plan to Pauline Paré, ASTC for Operations at 207-990-9554 or email Pauline.pare@me.usda.gov.
