Applying for a Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) is simple and straightforward under the new directive.

Follow the 5 steps below to get started:

Submit your application within 120 days of receiving a federal contract or 120 days before your current AAP expires.

A FAAP team member will conduct an initial review and will notify you if anything is missing.

Once all necessary documents are received, the full review and analysis period begins. This should take no longer than 60 days.

If approved, a draft agreement is recommended and submitted for signature by the contractor.

Once resubmitted to the FAAP Branch, the OFCCP director provides a final signature and the agreement goes into effect.

If you need help at any step, you can contact Tina Williams, Acting FAAP Branch Chief, at 202-693-0106 or
