A Guide to Compliance Reviews

What is a compliance review? A compliance review, or a scheduling letter, is for a single establishment or function and is scheduled through the Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS).

What can I expect from a compliance review?

Contractors have 30 days from the date of receipt of the letter to send OFCCP required documentation.

In addition to your Executive Order 11246, Section 503 and VEVRRA narrative  documents, there are 22 items that will need to be prepared and submitted to OFCCP:

  • Reporting on both 503 & VEVRRA outreach and evaluation of efforts
  • Detailed compensation data
  • Evaluation of prior year information (goals, hires, promotions, terminations)
  • EEO-1 reports and Collective Bargaining Agreements
  • Accommodation policies & documentation of requests
  • Information on policy and qualification reviews

An onsite review is possible if OFCCP deems necessary based on the desk audit review.

What is the CSAL? OFCCP gives contractors the gift of time by issuing Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSAL), typically twice a year, in advance of sending out scheduling letters. A CSAL is a “courtesy” notice to an establishment that it has been selected to undergo an audit by the OFCCP. It does not initiate an audit but instead provides additional time for preparation.  

Although previously mailed, OFCCP is now posting the CSAL on its website, specifically the FOIA Library.
