The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has begun sending Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs) to federal contractors, warning that they may soon be subject to a compliance review or audit.
The OFCCP monitorscompliance among federal government contractors and subcontractors.
OFCCP addressed the letters to each contractor’s “Human Resources Director.” The notifications are not official scheduling notices for an OFCCP audit, but only a “heads-up” that an audit will likely be conducted during OFCCP’s next scheduling cycle.
Receiving a CSAL letter is not a guarantee the firm will be audited, but federal contractors should view notification as an incentive to review their affirmative action plans to ensure they comply.
