Federal Contractors: Mandatory Affirmative Action Program Certification by July 1, 2024

by | Jun 11, 2024 | Employment Law |

Federal contractors must certify their compliance with Affirmative Action Program (AAP) requirements through the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ (OFCCP) Contractor Portal by July 1, 2024. This mandate applies to covered federal contractors and subcontractors, requiring them to demonstrate the development and management of an AAP for each business and/or functional unit.

Key Compliance Steps for Federal Contractors:

  1. Certification Deadline: Ensure your organization certifies AAP compliance by the July 1, 2024 deadline.
  2. New Contractors: Newly engaged federal contractors have 120 days from the contract start date to develop an AAP and register to certify compliance.
  3. Portal Registration: Register and certify compliance through the OFCCP Contractor Portal.

Importance of Compliance

Certifying compliance with AAP requirements is crucial for federal contractors and subcontractors. Failure to comply may result in penalties, including the potential loss of federal contracts.

For more detailed information on these requirements, visit the OFCCP’s official bulletin.

Stay ahead of the July 1, 2024, deadline by ensuring your AAP is in place and compliance is certified through the OFCCP Contractor Portal.
