Department of Labor makes key changes to Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) Directive

U.S. DOL Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs shares key points for those seeking federal contracts.

To better serve federal contractors, the Functional Affirmative Action Program (FAAP) has a new directive, which includes the following updates:

  • OFCCP will no longer consider compliance history when reviewing a request for a new FAAP agreement or termination.
  • The extended agreement term is five years, up from three years.
  • There will be a minimum of 36 months between compliance evaluations for a single functional unit. This is 12 months longer than an establishment review.
  • Complete FAAP applications will be determined within 60 days. Historically, there was no deadline.
  • OFCCP no longer requires that FAAP contractors undergo at least one compliance evaluation during the term of their FAAP agreement.
