OFCCP TO CONDUCT WEBINAR ON COMPLIANCE WITH THE NEW FUNCTIONAL AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM (FAAP) DIRECTIVE

by Art Gutman Ph.D., Professor, Florida Institute of Technology

The OFCCP announced today that it will host a Webinar on August 9, 2011 on how to comply with the new FAAP Directive, which became effective June 14, 2011 for covered contractors and their subcontractors. The webinar will overview key changes to the FAAP Directive, and procedures for requesting, renewing, modifying and terminating FAAP agreements. Under regulations implementing Executive Order 11246 [at 41 CFR 60-2.1 (d) (4)] permits federal supply and service contractors to develop affirmative action programs (AAPs) organized around distinct business functions or lines of business rather than AAPs based on contractor establishments. Under the new regulation, federal contractors must have an agreement approved by the OFCCP Director to develop and operate under a FAAP. The webinar is scheduled for 1.5 hours, including 30 minutes of Q&A. Interested readers should e-mail questions in advance of the webinar (subscriptions@subscriptions.dol.gov), as it is expected that maximum capacity will be reached quickly. It was noted that due to constraints in the system, registration confirmation does not guarantee a slot in the webinar.
