OMB Approves OFCCP’s Affirmative Action Program Verification Interface

On August 31, 2021 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved OFCCP’s Affirmative Action Program Verification Interface. The final notification states that the verification was approved with change and the agency has also published a final AAP-VI User Guide. View OFCCP's Contractor Portal webpage.

OFCCP’s website still has a landing page for “AAP-VI” or the Affirmative Action Plan Verification Interface.  The page says, “Coming Soon” with the details “Affirmative Action Plan Verification Interface (AAP-VI) is a secure web-based interface created to improve communication and the transfer of Affirmative Action Plan data, between Federal Contractors and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.”  We expect this website to be updated shortly. 

There is currently no information regarding the implementation date. DCI will provide updates as they become available.
