The OFCCP has posted its FY 2019 Service & Supply Scheduling List. New this year, the OFCCP will not mail advanced contractor notifications to individual establishments, formerly published as Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs). Instead, contractors will only receive advance notice of a pending compliance evaluation by searching the Scheduling List by company name.
The list is divided into five types of compliance evaluations:
- Section 503 Focused Reviews, which are new this year
- Corporate Management Compliance Evaluations
- Compliance Checks
- Establishment Reviews, or traditional OFCCP audits
- FAAP Reviews
Section 503 Focused Reviews are being conducted for the first time under this Scheduling List and will focus on a contractor’s affirmative action for individuals with disabilities. These reviews are outlined in DIR 2018-04 and OFCCP has posted further guidance on its website. OFCCP has stated:
“Section 503 focused reviews will include a comprehensive review of the contractor policies and procedures as they relate solely to Section 503. The reviews will also include an onsite investigation and interviews with managers responsible for equal employment opportunity and Section 503 compliance (such as the ADA coordinator) as well as employees affected by those policies. OFCCP would also seek to evaluate the handling of accommodation requests, to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not being discriminated against in employment.”
Current affirmative action clients should contact their project manager in the event they receive a Scheduling Letter.
