The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) will open its Contractor Portal on March 31 for existing covered federal contractors to certify their compliance with 2023 Affirmative Action Program (AAP) requirements between March 31-June 29, 2023. Covered federal contractors must use the Contractor Portal to certify annually whether they have developed and maintained an AAP for each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable. OFCCP advises that existing contractors that have not certified by June 29 will be more likely to appear on the agency’s scheduling list than those that have certified their compliance with AAP requirements. New contractors have 120 days to develop AAPs, and within 90 days of development, must certify compliance through the Portal, which will remain open after June 29 to accommodate them.
