OFCCP is committed to providing meaningful compliance assistance for federal contractors to understand federal laws and regulations. To uphold this commitment, we created a new technical assistance guide for educational institutions with federal contracts.

These federal contractors can use this technical assistance guide as a self-assessment tool as they create, review, and update their affirmative action programs.

Here are some highlights you’ll find in the new technical assistance guide for educational institutions:

An overview of the equal employment opportunity obligations for federal contractors
The required components of affirmative action programs and related information
What to expect during an OFCCP compliance evaluation

OFCCP helps federal contractors comply with the laws and regulations it enforces and understand the compliance evaluation process. We hope the release of OFCCP’s new technical assistance guide will further this aim and serve as a useful tool for educational institutions with federal contracts.
