What happened?
On December 2, 2021, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced the launch of its new “Contractor Portal,” which covered federal contractors and subcontractors (contractors) must use to certify, on an annual basis, whether they have developed and maintained an affirmative action program for each establishment and/or functional unit, as applicable.

What are the details?
Federal supply and service contractors and subcontractors that have 50 or more employees and one or more federal contracts or subcontracts of $50,000 or more are required to have in place (within 120 days of entering into a covered contract) a compliant affirmative action program for each employment location, including annual written affirmative action plans for women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and for contractors and subcontractors with one or more awards of $150,000 or more, protected veterans.
