What are the options for submitting the 2022 EEO-5 Report?

The EEOC requires that EEO-5 Reports be submitted electronically via the EEO-5 Online Filing System (OFS), accessible at https://eeocdata.org/eeo5. Returning filers will be required to reset their password when logging in. New filers must register in the OFS using a Registration ID and PIN. Once registered, workforce demographic data (i.e., data by employee race/ethnicity, sex, and activity assignment classification) can be entered directly into the online application or submitted as an electronically uploaded data file. Filers can begin submitting data for the 2022 EEO-5 Data Collection through the EEO-5 Online Filing System on Tuesday, October 4, 2022

How can a filer access the 2022 EEO-5 Online Filing System to begin submitting the 2022 EEO-5 Report?

Returning filers may sign in to the EEO-5 Online Filing System (OFS) by visiting https://eeocdata.org/eeo5/signin and entering the email address and password they established for the 2020 EEO-5 Data Collection. Returning filers will be prompted to reset their password before proceeding. If you do not know your password, select “Forgot Password.”

New filers will be required to create an individual user account to access the EEO-5 Online Filing System (OFS). This can be done by visiting https://eeocdata.org/eeo5/signin and selecting “Create an Account.” After creating an account and signing in to the EEO-5 OFS, filers can register a new school system or district by selecting “Add School System or District to List” on the My School System or District List screen. Filers should have the school system or district’s name and address available to complete the registration process.

How can school systems or districts add or update a point of contact(s) for the 2022 EEO-5 data collection?

Filers who have access to the school system or district in the EEO-5 Online Filing System (OFS) can update the school system or district’s contacts by selecting the appropriate school system or district from the Your School System or District List page. On the School System or District Dashboard page, select the “Confirm School System or District Contacts” step. To add a new contact, select “Add New Contact.” To update or delete an existing contact, select “Edit/Delete” next to the appropriate contact.

Once logged in, filers should select “Add School System or District to List” on the Your School System or District List screen.
