The deadline for federal contractors and subcontractors to certify compliance with the affirmative action regulations in the OFCCP Contractor Portal was June 29, 2023.  Leading up to the deadline, many contractors experienced technical issues in registering and certifying on the portal. 

OFCCP released a statement on June 30th stating that

OFCCP will consider a contractor’s registration and/or certification timely if the contractor has a pending request for assistance as of June 29, 2023.

The communication further stated that while the Help Desk is currently working through the open help desk tickets,

the deadline to certify compliance has not been extended. 

OFCCP directs any contractor or subcontractor that has not registered, certified, or submitted a help desk ticket should do so “as soon as possible.”  The Help Desk is still open to assist contractors and subcontractors with the registration and certification process.

We continue to monitor developments with the Contractor Portal and will provide updates as new information becomes available. If you have questions, please contact the Jackson Lewis attorney with whom you regularly work or a member of the Affirmative Action, OFCCP and Government Contract Compliance Group to discuss.
