OFCCP’s Affirmative Action Program Verification Interface, which will require federal contractors to certify that they have affirmative action programs in place for covered establishments, was approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on August 31, 2021. As part of the approval, two user guides - Admin Guide; Federal Contractor User Guide – were also released. These guides provide detailed information about how federal contractors will certify their affirmative action compliance.
OFCCP’s verification website, at https://www.dol.gov/agencies/ofccp/aavi , is not yet live, but contractors will have 90 days to certify their compliance once the verification portal is available. We will provide more detailed information about this development over the coming days as we digest the new user guides. In the meantime, now is the time to ensure that your organization can certify that it has a current affirmative action program for all covered establishments.
