On July 7, 2009, the OFCCP published a directive and FAQs setting forth procedures for scheduling and conducting Compliance Evaluation of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funded contractors.
In order to increase transparency and accountability of ARRA spending, OFCCP is obligated to track its ARRA related and non-ARRA related enforcement activities separately. The agency has established separate scheduling procedures to provide for compliance evaluations of ARRA funded contractors. The OFCCP will use different procedures when conducting compliance evaluations of ARRA funded contractors. Active Case Management (ACM) procedures will not be used. The ARRA compliance evaluation procedures require that OFCCP conduct a full compliance review, including a full desk audit and on-site review, of every ARRA funded contractor scheduled for an evaluation even in the absence of systemic discrimination.
