Audit letter renewed as expected
As expected the OMB has renewed the OFCCP's Scheduling Letter for conducting desk audits. This renewal is hardly news but it comes at an interesting time when the OFCCP budget is down along with staffing and the number of scheduling letters going out to contractors is at its lowest point in years. For now we will wait and watch as we progress through an election year waiting to see what a new administration will bring us.
Statement from OFCCP dated July 1, 2016:
"OFCCP made clarifying edits to the Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing (OMB Control Number 1250-0003) to ensure contractors understand the information being requested and to strengthen the agency’s assurances of confidentiality for the information provided. Additionally, OFCCP has included language in the renewed Scheduling Letter that provides a more complete description of its investigatory and enforcement processes.
The renewed Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing can be found at: http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewIC?ref_nbr=201602-1250-001&icID=13735.
