On April 26, 2011, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). This NPRM (76 FR 23358) proposes revising regulations implementing the affirmative action provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended.
The original comment period is scheduled to end on Monday, June 27, 2011. After receiving several requests for extensions, OFCCP is extending the comment period for this NPRM for 14 days until Monday, July 11, 2011. This action will provide all interested persons additional time to analyze the issues and provide their comments on the NPRM. Parties interested in commenting can view the NPRM and submit comments by using the Federal eRulemaking Portal www.regulations.gov and referencing RIN 1250-AA00.
