Being a federal contractor comes with many requirements. It’s confusing and can be difficult to manage. But, it is an important part of your responsibilities as a federal contractor and a Best Practices organization! OFCCP Certification is designed to simplify those requirements and help you identify next steps to your organization achieving compliance.
What if my organization is not compliant?
Currently: Federal contractors may be audited. If audited, your organization would need to produce proof of an AAP. You may face fines and legal battles as a result.
Future: OFCCP officials have acknowledged that they are working to gather information from the SAM database to potentially target contractors who have not completed their affirmative action compliance obligations. When this takes place, federal contractors will be forced to check a box as to whether or not they are compliant.
OFCCP Certification is a tool created to help federal contractors check their compliance. It was created by DCI Consulting, a human resources consulting firm. DCI has been providing OFCCP compliance consulting since 2001 and DCI's staff are recognized experts in OFCCP compliance. They have provided solutions to hundreds of employers around affirmative action plan development and implementation, pay equity analyses, employee selection, and OFCCP audit and litigation support.
DCI was motivated to create OFCCP Certification due to the increasing complication of OFCCP Compliance. Especially for new federal contractors, keeping up with the regulations is complicated. With an OFCCP Contractor Compliance Program on the horizon, federal contractors need a tool to ensure they are compliant.
