It’s been a busy morning for government contractors! As the NILG 2022 National Conference in Boston, Massachusetts was coming to a close and EEOC was releasing the NAS study on the EEO-1 Component 2 pay data collection tool, OFCCP was communicating with contractors about the OFCCP Contractor Portal.
In an e-mail communication, OFCCP provided a number of clarifications and additional information about the portal.
First, the Agency confirmed
OFCCP has not extended the June 30 deadline. Contractors that have not yet registered and certified whether they are in compliance with their AAP obligations should do so as soon as possible.
Second, OFCCP warned that
[c]ontractors that have not certified will be more likely to appear on OFCCP’s scheduling list than those that have certified their compliance with AAP requirements. Contractors that have not certified compliance include those that have not utilized the Portal to certify whether they are meeting their AAP requirements, as well as those contractors that have certified they have not developed or maintained an AAP.
Additionally, the notice reported, as reported by OFCCP Director Jenny Yang during her NILG National Conference keynote speech, that
contractors that have not certified compliance by September 1, 2022, will be included on a list provided to federal agency contracting officers. The purpose of this list is to enable contracting agencies to notify contractors of their certification obligations, thereby assisting OFCCP in securing compliance.
OFCCP continues to offer technical assistance for contractor who have not yet certified. OFCCP offers a user guide and frequently asked questions and directs contractors to contact the OFCCP Contractor Portal Technical Help Desk or call 1-800-397-6251 with any questions.
