OFCCP Publishes Updated Supply & Service Technical Assistance Guide

Jackson Lewis P.C.

As we noted in our August 2019 post, one of OFCCP Director Craig Leen’s priorities has been to update the Agency’s website with assistance materials for contractors – including Technical Assistance Guides (TAGs). OFCCP announced today that it has updated the TAG for contractors and subcontractors with covered supply or service contracts.

TAGs can be very helpful, especially for new federal contractors navigating affirmative action obligations for the first time, as well as for more seasoned contractors looking for insights into how the Agency may address compliance issues.

The new TAG appears to be comprehensive, covering topics ranging from written AAP organization to “Preparing for a Compliance Evaluation” and including Appendices, such as an AAP Checklist.

OFCCP notes the following highlights of the revised guide:

  • Revisions to reflect regulatory changes to Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act
  • Outlines the equal employment opportunity obligations for federal contractors
  • Lists the required components of affirmative action programs and related information
  • Discusses what to expect during OFCCP compliance evaluations

The Supply and Service TAG is now available alongside a Construction Contractor TAG, a TAG for Educational Institutions, and one for Small Contractors.

Our previous blog posts have delved into the Educational Institutions TAG, as well as the Construction Contractors TAG.

We will review this newest TAG and share our insights in future blog posts.
