The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is announcing changes allowing it to more thoroughly evaluate contractors through the strategic allocation of limited agency resources.
On September 11, 2020, OFCCP published Release 1 of its fiscal year (FY) 2020 Supply and Service Scheduling List. This list was comprised of 2,250 evaluations: 500 compliance reviews (which include establishment-based reviews, Corporate Management Compliance Evaluation (CMCE) reviews, Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) reviews, and university reviews); 500 accommodation focused reviews; 500 promotions focused reviews; 250 Section 503 focused reviews; and 500 compliance checks.
Today, OFCCP has amended this list by removing all establishments selected to receive focused reviews and compliance checks. The evaluations that will proceed include establishment-based compliance reviews, CMCE reviews, FAAP reviews and university compliance reviews. An amended Corporate Scheduling Announcement List (CSAL) and amended methodology have been posted on the agency website.
In taking this approach, OFCCP will build on the successes and lessons learned from the Section 503 and VEVRAA Focused Review program to strengthen the enforcement of its laws protecting people with disabilities and veterans during comprehensive compliance evaluations.
OFCCP has published frequently asked questions (FAQs) where you will find answers to other matters related to this topic. If you believe a facility should not be selected for review, you can send an email to the OFCCP Scheduling Mailbox at email@example.com. OFCCP responds to these inquiries promptly. And, if you have additional questions, please contact Lincoln Tyler for assistance.
