Watch for heads-up letter from OFCCP

Affirmative Action 

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently sent out 800 corporate scheduling announcement letters (CSALs) to selected federal contractors to let them know that they’re on the list for their affirmative action plan to be randomly audited.

The CSALs are courtesy notices and not legally required, so the OFCCP has been inconsistent about mailing them; the last occurrence was two years ago. If you receive one of these letters, treat it as a golden opportunity to get your affirmative action house in order before the actual audit scheduling letter arrives. If Vigilant prepares your written affirmative action plan, notify your Vigilant affirmative action representative right away so we can discuss how to address any potential concerns. For more information, see the OFCCP’s web pages with FAQs for the Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS) and Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letter.
