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.
