The OFCCP published a notice in today’s Federal Register soliciting public comments on a proposed three-year extension of the Secretary of Labor’s Opportunity Award, Exemplary Voluntary Effort (EVE), and Exemplary Public Interest Contribution (EPIC) Awards. The awards program is currently approved through January 31, 2007. Written comments must be submitted to the Department of Labor on or before August 7, 2006.
The awards recognize outstanding federal contractors and non-profit public interest organizations with exceptional equal opportunity and nondiscrimination programs that support the OFCCP mission. Guidelines for the nomination process, which were signed February 2, 2004 by Charles E. James, Sr., Deputy Assistant Secretary, are available on the DOL Web site.
Recipients of the 2005 awards were announced April 26 at a ceremony attended by DCI President David Cohen and Vice President of Government Relations Harold Busch.
