    A new directive issued by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) aims to help the office streamline its compliance evaluation process of federal contractors.

    The directive—which went into effect on April 17—is titled “Efficiency in Compliance Evaluations” and is intended to help OFCCP achieve its goals of either:

    • Completing audits within 180 days when there are no indicators of discrimination; or
    • Issuing a Pre-Determination Notice (PDN) within one year from the issuance of the scheduling letter when discrimination indicators exist.

    Jackson Lewis LLC reports that these goals assume that “the contractor fully cooperates with the compliance review, including timely submissions of all documents and records and providing prompt access to all interviewees and premises requested by OFCCP.”

    More information about Directive 2020-02: Efficiency in Compliance Evaluations is available on the U.S. Department of Labor’s website
