OFCCP Contractor Portal Open Until June 29, 2023
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs' (OFCCP) Contactor Portal is now open until June 29, 2023.
Federal contractors and subcontractors (contractors) must certify, on an annual basis, whether they are meeting their requirement to develop and maintain annual Affirmative Action Plans (AAP). Contractors are required to use OFCCP's Contractor Portal to certify AAP compliance. For the 2023 annual certification cycle, existing contractors will be required to complete their certification of establishments or function/business units between March 31, 2023, and June 29, 2023. As the last Corporate Scheduling Announcement List (CSAL) targeted contractors who have not certified, it is especially important for contractors to ensure timely, accurate certification on the portal.
