OFCCP COVID-19 Updates

Last week, OFCCP sent out two announcements on adjustments related to COVID-19, one regarding Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) participants, and the other regarding data safety.

For FAAP participants, OFCCP’s FAAP team will continue to process FAAP requests and certifications remotely and has made adjustments to ensure that they are staying consistent with current public health guides. These adjustments include:

  • For FAAP contractors, and contractors interested in entering into FAAP agreements, we are available to meet by phone, WebEx, and Skype.
  • All requests for agreement modifications, new application requests, updates, and certifications of FAAP agreements will be emailed for review and electronic signature.
  • Finalized agreements will be signed by the Director and returned to the contractor electronically.

OFCCP also announced that it is committed to data safety as the agency securely teleworks during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to OFCCP, their specific security measures include: 

“OFCCP […] requires compliance officers to store information received from contractors on the agency’s secure network. The network is only accessible using government-issued computers through the agency’s secure VPN. In addition, all compliance officers are required to complete annual training from DOL and OFCCP on safeguarding data.”
