OFCCP has confirmed that as of February 17, 2017 that it has mailed 800 Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs) in its first release of the FY2017 Scheduling List. These are the first CSALs issued by OFCCP in approximately two years. In the revised FAQs for CSALs, OFCCP stated that these CSALs are being sent directly to establishments notify them that they will be scheduled for a compliance evaluation during the upcoming scheduling cycle. According to the FAQs on the Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS), the 800 establishments cover 375 distinct companies in 29 industries. The FY2017 Scheduling List also includes 30 Corporate Management Compliance Evaluations (CMCEs).
In addition, OFCCP made a small change to the notice that federal contractors must post regarding the Pay Transparency regulations, which became effective on January 11, 2017 and apply to all covered contracts entered into or modified as of that date. OFCCP has indicated that federal contractors should implement the revised Notice as soon as practicable. The revised notice can be found here.
