Description

Join the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), U.S. Department of Labor, for an overview of recent changes to the EEO requirements that apply to government acquisitions. 

Are you a contracting officer with a federal government agency? Do you handle pre-award EEO clearances? Are you responsible for ensuring bidders have Affirmative Action Programs (AAPs) in place? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, this webinar is designed for you! OFCCP will provide information on updates to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA), Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the recently issued Executive Order 13672, prohibiting discrimination on the bases of sexual orientation and gender identity. In addition, OFCCP presenters will discuss the impact of these changes on federal government contracts and the equal opportunity clause, the pre-award clearance process, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), government contractors’ filing of the EEO-1 Report, and the “Equal Employment Opportunity Is The Law (EEOC)” poster.

For more information about OFCCP, please visit the Federal Contracting Officer Corner on OFCCP’s website.

If you are a federal acquisition workforce member and would like to receive continuous learning points (CLPs) for viewing this recording, you can sign up for the event via the FAITAS Course Catalog.
