OFCCP Clarifies Contractor Portal Issues and Questions
The OFCCP Contractor Portal
Contractor Portal deadline has passed
Now that the Contractor Portal registration deadline has passed, what do I need to know?
In a press release today the OFCCP clarified some points that have been misunderstood by some federal contractors and compliance professionals across the country. The primary issues that have been debated are deadline extensions and the agency’s audit priorities.
The OFCCP has not extended the June 30 deadline. Contractors that have not yet registered and certified whether they are in compliance with their AAP obligations should do so as soon as possible. Contractors that have not certified will be more likely to appear on OFCCP’s scheduling list than those that have certified their compliance with AAP requirements. In addition, contractors that have not certified compliance by September 1, 2022, will be included on a list provided to federal agency contracting officers. The purpose of this list is to enable contracting agencies to notify contractors of their certification obligations, thereby assisting OFCCP in securing compliance.
OFCCP will consider those contractors that requested assistance from OFCCP on or before June 30, 2022 but have not yet completed registration or certification because of a pending request for assistance, to have met the June 30 deadline. The Contractor Portal Technical Help Desk is currently addressing open help desk tickets.
