OFCCP Publishes Small Contractor Technical Assistance Guide

Rounding out the Agency’s efforts to beef up its Technical Assistance Guides (TAGs) for different types of federal contractors, OFCCP recently published a “Small Contractor” TAG.  TAGs can be helpful resources for both new and experienced federal contractors, and the aim of this TAG is to guide those small contractors with limited resources through the maze of affirmative action obligations.

In particular, the Small Contractor TAG provides guidance for contractors with supply or service contracts or subcontracts, as well as construction contractors and subcontractors.  OFCCP explains that the TAG can be used as a “self-assessment tool” for compliance with all three affirmative action laws:  Executive Order 11246, Section 503 and VEVRAA.

Small contractors would be well-served by relying on the TAG as a checklist for their compliance efforts.
