Deadline extended to Friday, March 3, 2023
The OFCCP intends to release Type 2 EEO-1 data to the Center for Investigative Reporting, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The agency requested federal contractors review the list of non-objectors and alert the OFCCP of any errors, for example, if a contractor:
- had previously submitted an objection through the agency’s FOIA objection portal,
- was not a covered federal contractor subject to OFCCP’s jurisdiction, or
- was part of a collection of related companies which were not listed as objecting companies.
The OFCCP is now willing to listen to a contractor’s new objections to releasing the data if they have a good reason for objection. Contractors should “include an explanation as to why you did not object in response to previous notices that OFCCP has issued, and why there is a good cause for OFCCP to accept the objection at this point.” The OFCCP will consider a late-filled objection if it “determines that there is a good cause for why the objection was not filed in response to the previous notices provided by the agency.”
Contractors must contact the OFCCP National FOIA office by calling 1-800-397-6252 or by email at OFCCP-FOIA-EEO1-Questions@dol.gov by Friday, March 03, 2023.
If you have any other questions regarding your EEO-1 data or need assistance in preparing your 2023 EEO-1 submission, please contact your OutSolve consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 888-414-2410.
