OFCCP is seeking public comments on its proposed information collection request (ICR) to renew recordkeeping and reporting requirements for construction contractors. The ICR was published in the Federal Register on September 2nd.
This proposal applies to the existing construction recordkeeping and reporting requirements under Executive Order 11246 and newly revised 503 and VEVRAA regulations. Due to a decrease in the number of construction contractors, OFCCP estimated a subsequent decrease of 705,941 hours in the recordkeeping burden hours. However, they proposed an increase of 130,917 in reporting burden hours, due to the requirement that construction contractors notify OFCCP of awards of covered contracts and subcontracts in excess of $10,000 (41 CFR 60-4.2(c)). Burden hour estimates are not included for 503 and VEVRAA compliance obligations, as they are included in the respective regulatory documents.
This ICR is not to be confused with proposed rule 1250-AA01 that would revise construction contractors’ affirmative action obligations under E.O. 11246.
If applicable, DCI strongly recommends that you review the ICR and provide responses on or before November 3, 2014.
