On Tuesday, November 3rd, OFCCP released a new Technical Assistance Guide (TAG) for supply and service federal contractors.
According to OFCCP, Federal supply and service contractors can use this technical assistance guide as a self-assessment tool as they create, review, and update their affirmative action programs and carry out their equal employment opportunity obligations.
Here are some highlights of the new technical assistance guide for supply and service:
- This guide incorporates revisions since its last publication to reflect regulatory changes to Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act
- Outlines the equal employment opportunity obligations for federal contractors
- Lists the required components of affirmative action programs and related information
- Discusses what to expect during OFCCP compliance evaluations
DCI Staff are currently reviewing the new TAG and will provide a more detailed summary of its contents in a follow-up blog series.
