As anticipated, OFCCP has published additional information, including an implementation timeline, for its Affirmative Action Verification Interface (AAPVI) Portal. OFCCP provided the following timeline in its communication to contractors:
On Feb. 1, 2022, contractors may begin registering for access to the portal. OFCCP will also send an e-mail to each covered federal contractor in its jurisdiction whose email information is available in its system inviting them to register.
On March 31, 2022, contractors will be able to utilize the certification feature in the portal to certify their AAP compliance.
By June 30, 2022, existing contractors must certify whether they have developed and maintained an affirmative action program for each establishment and/or functional unit, as applicable.
Additional information will be forthcoming from the Agency. But in the meantime, OFCCP is directing contractors to its Contractor Portal Landing Page as well as its Frequently Asked Questions.
We will be reviewing this information and will provide additional updates and insights in the coming days.
