The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has released a statement that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is seeking comments on the process of applying for the Contractor Recognition Program-Disability Inclusion Award. This award recognizes the contractors and sub-contractor establishments that have achieved a level of excellence in their compliance with the regulations set forth in Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. This program joins the HIRE Vets Recognition Program released by OFCCP last year and supports the agency’s stated goal of recognition of contractors “doing the right thing.”
OMB is interested in hearing comments regarding if the information being requested is necessary for the function of this award; the burden of the information collection process; and the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being requested. Information on how to submit any comments pertaining to this recognition can be submitted via fax to 202.395.5806 or by email to OIRA_submission@omb.eop.gov.
