OFCCP Opens Contractor Portal for Covered Contractors and Subcontractors to Certify Compliance with Affirmative Action Plan Requirements

The Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced the opening of the Contractor Portal for the 2024 Affirmative Action Program (AAP) certification period, which runs from April 1 to July 1, 2024. As part of the announcement, OFCCP reminded covered federal contractors to begin certifying their AAP compliance through the portal to meet the July 1, 2024 deadline.

Covered federal contractors and subcontractors must use the portal to certify, on an annual basis, whether they have developed and maintained an AAP for each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable. New contractors have 120 days to develop their AAP(s) and must register and certify compliance through the contractor portal within 90 days of developing their AAP(s).

OFCCP has provided Frequently Asked Questions and step-by-step how to videos, along with User Guides and other pertinent information on the Contractor Portal Information page. Contractors can also refer to pre-recorded webinars on the Contractor Portal information page that demonstrate how a contractor can enter its establishment and/or functional/business unit’s AAP start date and certify compliance thought the Contractor Portal. Questions about the Contractor Portal can also be directed to the OFCCP Help Desk at 1-800-397-6251 by pressing 1 for English or 2 for Spanish, and then pressing 1 again to reach technical support for assistance.
