For many federal contractors, managing the ever-changing demands of Affirmative Action (AA) and EEO compliance can be a lofty endeavor. While working to implement new requirements and improve existing processes, many tend to overlook the important role of management in fulfilling compliance obligations. This training is specifically designed to address managers of federal contractor organizations through a concise but comprehensive review of AA/EEO obligations and the requirements for achieving compliance. Beginning with a high-level overview of regulatory requirements (e.g., EO 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, VEVRAA) and enforcement, this training will provide the foundation for understanding AA/EEO compliance for federal contractors. Major topics will include the following:
EEO Obligations for Federal Contractors
- Affirmative Action
Overview of the OFCCP
- Background, Auditing, & Enforcement
Overview of the Affirmative Action Program (AAP)
- Identifying Risk Areas
- Following-up on Risk Areas

DCI has just learned that OFCCP began to send out audit scheduling letters on March 17th. At this time we are not certain how many were sent out, but we do know that 800 CSALs (Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters) were sent to contractor establishments last month. It is critical that corporate compliance representatives notify individual establishments in their organization to be on the look-out for any official OFCCP correspondence. If you did receive a scheduling notice, please notify DCI immediately so that we can assist you with the audit process.
