Departmental Regulation 4120-001

Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights

Annual Departmental Civil Rights Training


This Departmental Regulation (DR) establishes the training policy for USDA civil rights programs and equal employment opportunity (EEO). It also establishes oversight and accountability responsibilities for Federal employees and Agencies delivering Federally assisted and Federally conducted programs for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Department or USDA). Annual training plans must comply with the requirements of this DR, but nothing in the DR precludes Agencies, Staff Offices, National Appeals Division (NAD) or Office of Inspector General (OIG) from conducting additional and supplemental civil rights training throughout the year.
