To ensure that OFCCP addresses common areas of interest during the webinar, registrants may submit questions in advance using the registration link below by November 5, 2022. Registration for the webinar will close on November 16, 2022 and is limited to the first 1,000 participants.
OFCCP revised the existing FAAP Directive on September 21, 2022. Directive 2013-01, Revision 3, establishes policies and procedures for requesting, modifying, and renewing FAAP agreements that enable federal contractors and subcontractors the opportunity to organize affirmative action programs to reflect how the entity operates functionally, rather than where its facilities and employees are physically located. This revision provides clarification regarding procedural requirements, in addition to minor language and formatting changes, that continue to provide for a FAAP process that is efficient, fluid, and collaborative. Any contractor that enters a FAAP agreement or modifies or renews a current agreement on or after the effective date is subject to the revised Directive.
Additional information, including FAAP Frequently Asked Questions and contact information, is available on OFCCP’s webpage dedicated to the agency’s FAAP program. Contractors who are interested in requesting a FAAP agreement or who have questions regarding their current FAAP agreement may contact the Branch of National Programs at OFCCP_FAAP-UNIT@dol.gov or (202) 693-1125.
