During the opening remarks of the 2020 NILG Annual Conference – this year being held virtually as the NILG 2020 Webinar Series – OFCCP Director Craig Leen announced the Agency will initiate VEVRAA Focused Reviews in as little as two weeks. Prefacing that the Agency will be giving consideration for the COVID-19 pandemic, Director Leen announced OFCCP will soon start sending out scheduling letters to those companies previously identified by the Agency in the VEVRAA Focused Review supplemental scheduling list. As we previously reported, OFCCP recently received approval of its VEVRAA Focused Review Scheduling Letter.
As a reminder, OFCCP has published a number of Technical Assistance resources on its VEVRAA landing page to assist contractors prepare for these reviews. During his remarks, Director Leen confirmed the VEVRAA Focused Reviews will include evaluation of contractors’ treatment of veteran spouses. Additionally, according to OFCCP’s FAQs, the Agency will be conducting virtual on-site reviews as part of the VEVRAA Focused Review process.
We will continue to monitor this development and provide an update with any new information.
