OFCCP Opens Online Portal for Federal Contractors to Certify Affirmative Action

April 23, 2024

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has initiated the acceptance of online submissions from covered contractors as of April 1.

For the third consecutive year, existing federal contractors and subcontractors must utilize the OFCCP’s Contractor Portal to complete this certification, with the deadline set for July 1, 2024.

Contractors must certify that they have diligently developed and upheld affirmative action programs for their establishments or functional units. These obligations apply to contractors meeting specific contract dollar and employee thresholds. The Contractor Portal facilitates this process, allowing multiple users to register, manage records, and certify compliance.

The affirmative action programs they implement ensure that all applicants and employees of federal contractors enjoy equal employment opportunities, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or status as a protected veteran.
