OFCCP to Open Contractor Portal for Federal Contractors to Certify Compliance with Affirmative Action Program requirements on March 31
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP) announced it will open its Contractor Portal on March 31, 2023 for existing federal contractors to certify compliance with Affirmative Action Program (AAP) requirements for this year.
In its announcement, OFCCP highlights that covered federal contractors and subcontractors must use the Contractor Portal to certify, on an annual basis, whether they have developed and maintained an AAP for each establishment and/or functional/business unit. For 2023, existing covered contractors must certify their compliance through the Contractor Portal between March 31 and June 29, 2023.
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). The Contractor Portal will remain open after the June 29, 2023 deadline to accommodate new contractors. OFCCP will post a pre-recorded webinar to the Contractor Portal landing page by March 29, 2023 that will demonstrate how contractors can enter their establishment and/or functional/business unit’s AAP start date and certify compliance through the Contractor Portal.
For those who have not yet registered for the Contractor Portal, OFCCP has provided a “How-To” video here as well as a “User Guide” here.
