Second notice in the Federal Register changes the public comment period on proposed changes to the OFCCP audit scheduling letter and itemized listing.
As reported in OutSolve’s blog, “OFCCP Publishes Significant Modifications to Audit Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing,” the agency issued revisions seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval on November 21, 2022. Public comments on the proposed changes were to be submitted by January 20, 2023.
On April 17, 2023, OFCCP published in the Federal Register an insignificant change to the original submission seeking additional public comments before May 17, 2023. Commenters may provide input on the regulations.gov site here.
OFCCP was seeking changes to information collection requirements (ICRs), for Supply and Service contractors. All existing scheduling letters are set to expire on April 30, 2023 but will continue to be used until OMB approval. Since the reporting period has been extended until May 17, the existing scheduling letters will be used for a period beyond their original approval date.
The new OFCCP notice does not contain any significant new information other than referencing the November notice and the new 30-day comment period. Unlike the November 2022 notice, which included a 31-page supporting statement, this new notice does not include additional documents justifying the need for the new notice.
OutSolve believes that the notice was published to offer OFCCP additional time to review and make changes based on the numerous comments received to date. We will continue to monitor any additional information on this topic and keep our clients posted.
