OMB reviewing proposed changes to scheduling letters, including Section 503 and VEVRAA focused reviews and compliance check letters.
The OMB published a request for comments on OFCCP revised supply and service scheduling letters as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).In Mid-April, OFCCP originally published its proposed revisions to the scheduling letter (see OutSolve blog).
According to the publication, OMB is interested in comments that:
• Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
• Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
• Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
• Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses.
Comments can be submitted until July 29, 2019 by mail to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attn: OMB Desk Officer for DOL-OFCCP, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10235, 725 17th Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20503. Comments can also be faxed to (202) 395-5806 or sent via email to OIRA_submission@omb.eop.gov.
The current scheduling letter expired on June 30, 2019; however, while OMB is evaluating the proposed revisions the current letter is on a month-to-month extension.
