In March 2023, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) launched the groundbreaking Megaproject program, aimed at providing essential resources and support for federal construction projects valued at $35 million or more and lasting at least one year. This program is dedicated to promoting equal opportunities within the construction trades. Exciting news came last week when the OFCCP announced the inclusion of 12 additional federal construction projects as official Megaprojects. The identification process for these new projects was carried out in collaboration with esteemed organizations such as the Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Energy (DOE), General Services Administration (GSA), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To ensure fairness, the agency meticulously employed a set of neutral criteria to designate these Megaprojects from a vast selection of eligible projects.

In June 2023, the OFCCP published a Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letter (CSAL) identifying 250 federal construction contractors, federally assisted contractors, and federally assisted subcontractors for upcoming compliance evaluations. The agency used a specific methodology to compile the list, targeting contracts with a value exceeding $10,000 and estimated start dates before May 15, 2022, and estimated end dates after May 15, 2025. Although the OFCCP has not yet released a CSAL specifically identifying Megaprojects, they likely will continue to focus on large contractors involved in long-term federally funded projects for future compliance audits.
