The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has announced that their new Contractor Portal will be going live in 2022. The Portal will require contractors to certify, on an annual basis, whether they have developed and maintained an affirmative action program for each establishment and/or functional unit, as applicable. In addition, the Contractor Portal will provide a secure portal for scheduled contractors to submit to OFCCP their Affirmative Action Program(s) during compliance evaluations. There are several important dates that contractors should be aware of:
- February 1, 2022 – Contractors may begin registering for access to the portal
- March 31, 2022 – Contractors will be able to utilize the certification feature in the portal to certify their AAP compliance.
- June 30, 2022 – Existing contractors must certify whether they have developed and maintained an affirmative action program for each establishment and/or functional unit, as applicable.
Additional information on the Contractor Portal, including Frequently Asked Questions, can be found on OFCCP’s Contractor Portal Landing Page.
