NOAA Rotational Assignment Program

The 2016 application phase is now closed …

We expect to start the 2017 NRAP cycle in late winter.

Next steps in the 2016 NRAP cycle are:

  1. Approval —Home Office supervisors must approve applicants’ participation.
  2. Review — the NRAP Program Manager sends approved applications to the assignment's Host Office Supervisor.
  3. Interview — Host Office Supervisors may conduct interviews before indicating their preferred candidate(s) to the NRAP Program Manager.
  4. Matches — the NRAP Program Manager will notify applicants, who may receive more than one offer (if you apply to multiple assignments) or none (if you are not selected).
  5. Assignments — begin as negotiated between participants and their Home and Host Office Supervisors.
