New Desk Audit letters have been sent to contractor establishments
Federal contractors are always anxious to know when audit warning letters (CSALs) or actual audit letters (30-day Scheduling Letters) are being mailed out. Well, OFCCP has updated their website to show that the 30-day Scheduling Letters were mailed out on March 17th. This means that an unknown number of letters have been send under a generic label to the Human Resources Manager at the address that OFCCP intends to audit. Contractors should notify their staff to be on the lookout for these letters. The actual 30-day Scheduling Letter will arrive as a Certified Mail and will require a signature. This receipt date and signature will start the 30-day clock. OFCCP can follow the tracking to identify when the contractor signed for the letter.
