Three Years Later, the Next Shoe Drops: OMB Approves Revised OFCCP Scheduling Letter

From: Crowell Moring

Significant changes are just over the horizon for federal contractors and subcontractors, as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the revised Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing (Scheduling Letter) proposed by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Three years after the OFCCP first submitted a revised Scheduling Letter to the OMB for approval, the Agency published a notice in the Federal Register on September 30th, announcing that the OMB has approved the revised Letter for use until March, 31, 2016. The revised Scheduling Letter will require contractors, at the outset of a compliance review, to submit to OFCCP individualized compensation data, personnel activity data broken out by each racial subgroup (rather than in two groupings – minorities and non-minorities), and additional materials to demonstrate compliance with the new regulations that became effective earlier this year, overhauling contractor obligations under the Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.
