The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has sent a new round of pre-audit letters to 800 individual locations and facilities of federal contractors and subcontractors. This letter puts contractors on notice that their locations can anticipate an Audit Letter in the future. These were all sent to the facility directly, rather than to any corporate headquarters.

 

Please note that this first letter is NOT the actual Audit Scheduling Letter. It does not require any response by your organization.

 

We recommend checking your mailbox (and your company’s mail room) to see if your location has received a letter from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).  Most likely it will be addressed to “Human Resources Director”.

 

If you receive this letter, here’s what we recommend…

 

  • If your location is part of a multi-location employer, notify the person in charge of AAP compliance at the corporate level. These letters appear to be in place of notifying a corporate representative about all the locations where audits are planned.

 

  • If you are the corporate contact for multiple locations, we recommend alerting each facility’s local HR representative to be on the lookout for such a letter.

 

Please contact us at Human Resource Specialties right away to ensure that your organization has a current AAP and is prepared to respond.  Audit support is included in our annual affirmative action services to your organization.
