These requirements apply to both supply and service and construction federal contractors who meet the appropriate thresholds.

• Removing the reasonable accommodation notice;

• Expanding the language under the “Why are you being asked to complete this form” section;

• Revising and alphabetizing the disability example list;

• Changing the following disability example list from:

o blindness to blind or low vision;

o deafness to deaf or hard of hearing benefiting from hearing aid(s);

• Removing from the disability example list impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair; and

• Adding to the disability example list the following, some of which will consolidate a few of the current disabilities listed on their own:
