Federal Contract Compliance Manual

The regulations implementing Executive Order 11246 (EO 11246), as amended, authorize OFCCP to conduct compliance evaluations of federal contractors. The term “contractor” as used in the Manual includes “subcontractors” unless otherwise noted. Compliance evaluations determine whether federal contractors maintain nondiscriminatory hiring and employment practices. OFCCP also uses them to determine whether contractors are taking affirmative action to ensure that applicants and employees are treated without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Other regulations permitting OFCCP to conduct compliance evaluations  implementing provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) and Section 503. These evaluations are to determine whether federal contractors are complying with their obligations to ensure nondiscrimination. They also determine whether contractors are taking affirmative action to employ, promote, train, retain and provide reasonable accommodation to certain protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, respectively.
