In addition to changing their compliance review process in general, OFCCP is also implementing a few significant changes to their compensation review process. These changes include cancelling former compensation analysis guidelines and requesting additional information during audits.
In a directive issued December 2, the OFCCP formally cancelled the Active Case Management (ACM) procedures that began in 2003. ACM goverened the compliance evaluation process by focusing enforcement efforts on cases with indicators of systemic discrimination, i.e. cases with 10 or more potential victims. The result of ACM for Federal contractors was generally short desk audits and fewer onsite audits. Unless there were particular problem areas that stood out, audits resolved fairly quickly. That will no longer be the case.
Our two-part video series covers some of the major changes going on at OFCCP in 2010. Part 1, Audit Trends, looks at recent and expected trends in OFCCP's compliance evaluation processes. Part 2, Behind the Scenes, evaluates the internal changes and initiatives that are priorities to OFCCP.
