A brief synopsis from OFCCP posting
Below are a few highlights from the OFCCP posting about how they are selecting contractors for review in 2018. No huge surprises but always interesting to see what is happening behind the curtain.
Summary: provided mostly from our perspective and not necessarily a word for word extract.
Data pulled from archived files of the Federal Procurement Data System–Next Generation (FPDS-NG) for years 2015, 2016 and 2017 and then matched to the EEO-1 database
Removed anything that appeared to be inactive
Excluded non-service and supply contractors (gov't, school district, construction)
No TRICARE subcontractors were included in the scheduling list. Reminder the moratorium expires next year, that could be a game changer.
Companies with at least 100 employees that are linked to a parent company were added to the parent "Establishment File" and became part of the "Available Pool" that is eligible for an audit.
Approved Functional Plan units and associated establishments that are not developing functional plans were added to the available pool.
Establishments already under review were removed from the pool, were audited in the last 5 years or were currently being monitored.
Using EEO-1 data, OFCCP removed Direct Establishments with less than 70 employees
Based on OFCCP’s available resources – FTE as of December 2017 – the scheduling list was capped at 1,000 establishments.
Copying their concluding point here. As always, the OutSolve team will be monitoring activity and sharing changes.
"The Available Pool was ordered by employee count (highest to lowest) within each district office. OFCCP applied the following criteria to select the specific number of establishments that each district office received for scheduling: (1) priority for establishments with higher employee count regardless of Direct or Associate establishment status, (2) no more than 10 establishments of a parent company in the entire scheduling list, (3) no district office to have more than four establishments of the same company, (4) no more than two functional units of each FAAP company, and (5) no district office to have more than two corporate/regional headquarter (CMCE), two FAAP Units and one university for review. Once all establishments for this release were identified, they were randomly ordered, uploaded into the Case Management System and, if necessary, appended to district offices’ lists of unscheduled establishments. OFCCP does not purge unscheduled cases from prior lists before releasing a new scheduling list."
