NASA Centers classify positions and address employee concerns about classification decisions. If an employee disagrees with the decision, the employee is encouraged to first appeal the decision through the Center appeals process.
Employees may appeal grade, occupational series, and sometimes the title of their position. Once the Center appeals process has been exhausted, or if the employee elects to bypass the Center process, the employee may appeal the Center decision to the Agency or directly to the Office of Personnel Management.
Agency-level appeals are received by NASA HQ Office of Human Capital Management (OHCM) and forwarded to the NASA Shared Service Center (NSSC) for review, audit, and preparation of a proposed decision. NASA HQ's Office of Human Capital Management (OHCM) will then make the final determination.
(See the Classification Appeals Checklist, under Quick Links, for instructions on how to file an appeal.)
