OFCCP Creates New Online “School” for Federal Contractors

As of today, federal contractors have a new tool for understanding a variety of compliance obligations enforced by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”). The Agency has launched a Contractor Compliance Institute (“CCI”) where contractors can take free, on-demand courses on a variety of OFCCP-related topics.

The CCI is designed to help contractors learn more about their obligations; evaluate current personnel and affirmative action practices; and stay current with OFCCP initiatives, according to a news release from OFCCP.

To access the courses, contractors must create an account at the CCI website. After registering, the contractor is directed to a training module depending on the organizational role of the participant. There is currently posted a single training for each of the following:

  • Compensation Manager

  • Hiring Manager

  • Human Resources Manager

  • Front Line Supervisor/Manager

  • Recruiter

The CCI website also includes definitions of Section 503 Disability Focused Reviews and Functional Affirmative Action Plans (FAAPs), as well as links to OFCCP’s existing pages that contain downloadable posters and self-identification forms.

The Agency created the tool in furtherance of its commitment to providing meaningful technical assistance to contractors.
