OFCCP Scheduling Letters to be Mailed Beginning March 19, 2018 !

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a new set of Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSAL) on February 1, 2018. The notices provide selected contractors with advance notice their establishment has been selected to undergo a compliance evaluation of their affirmative action regulatory requirements.

While a CSAL provides advanced notice of an audit, a scheduling letter, with an Itemized Listing, initiates the actual evaluation process. According to OFCCP, they will begin sending formal scheduling letters to the recently identified establishments beginning March 19, 2018.

Contractors have 30 days from the receipt of the scheduling letter and Itemized Listing to send their written affirmative action plan (AAP) and supporting documents to the OFCCP.

What Should Contractors Do Now?
Contractors can be proactive by:

  1. Notifying Human Resources or other designated point of contact at the identified location to be on the lookout for the official scheduling letter, which is sent by certified mail;
  2. Identifying whether any selected establishment was reviewed in the last five years since OFCCP‘s website indicated establishments reviewed in the past five years would not be scheduled; and
  3. Reviewing the AAP for the location under review to ensure compliance and resolve any issues that may arise in the audit.
