The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is committed to providing meaningful compliance assistance for federal contractors. Today, we released our new technical assistance guide for federal supply and service contractors.

Federal supply and service contractors can use this technical assistance guide as a self-assessment tool as they create, review, and update their affirmative action programs and carry out their equal employment opportunity obligations.

Here are some highlights of the new technical assistance guide for supply and service:

This guide incorporates revisions since its last publication to reflect regulatory changes to Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act
Outlines the equal employment opportunity obligations for federal contractors
Lists the required components of affirmative action programs and related information
Discusses what to expect during OFCCP compliance evaluations

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