OFCCP continues to send out scheduling letters for compliance evaluations but offers liberal requests for extensions
From information provided by the NILG, OFCCP is continuing operations to the extent feasible taking into account the current COVID-19 pandemic. In order to do so, they will implement the following protocols:
- Grant an automatic 30-day extension for submission of AAPs after receipt of Scheduling Letter.
- Grant an automatic additional 30-day extension to contractors who submit their written AAP narrative within 60 days of receipt of the scheduling letter (i.e. provide another 30 days for submission of all data reports and analyses).
- Grant an automatic extension of 14 days, and more commonly of 30 days, for contractor response to information requests, with opportunity for further extensions, as needed.
- Conduct 503 focused review on sites via video or phone conference only until contractors begin resuming normal operations.
Contractors can contact the OFCCP Ombudsman, Marcus Stergio at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-693-1174 with comments or questions. Contractors concerned about missing CSAL or scheduling letters can provide an email address for the responsible contractor employee to the applicable Regional Director, with a copy to the Deputy Director Patricia Davidson at email@example.com. This will ensure that contractors receive CSALs and scheduling letters by mail and email.
