Administrative Grievance System


This Directive sets forth the USDA’s policy and procedures for the filing, reviewing, and disposition of administrative grievances.
The Administrative Grievance System (AGS) provides a fair, equitable, and timely forum for the internal review and resolution of disputes over employment related matters. An efficient and effective AGS is in the best interests of both the agency and the employee in that it provides a means for the agency to identify and track employee concerns.
