The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) Contractor Portal will open on March 31, 2023, for covered federal contractors to certify compliance with affirmative action program (AAP) requirements for this year.
Federal contractors and subcontractors must certify on the Contractor Portal annually regardless of whether they are developing a new or maintaining an existing AAP for each establishment or business unit, as applicable. Existing federal contractors must certify their compliance through the portal between March 31- June 29, 2023. An enhancement has been made to the portal where contractors must provide the start date of their AAP Coverage Period when certifying.
New federal contractors have 120 days to develop their AAP(s) and certify compliance through the Contractor Portal within 90 days of developing their AAP(s). To accommodate this timeline, the Contractor Portal will remain open after June 29, 2023.
The OFCCP has posted a pre-recorded webinar with more information to the Contractor Portal landing page. This instructional webinar will show how contractors can enter information on their establishment’s AAP start date.
If you have not registered on the Contractor Portal, you can do so here starting on March 31, 2023.
