FAAP Update

logo for the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)The OFCCP issued Revision 2 of Directive 2013-01 (Functional Affirmative Action Plans – “FAAP”) effective June 20, 2019.

We initially reported the proposed changes in September 2018 and spotlighted the open comment period again in April 2019.  Effective June 20, 2019, the OFCCP adopted the proposed changes and revised the FAAP Directive (scroll down by Directive number – not date – to find the update). Changes, including the elimination of the mandatory compliance evaluation, might entice the use of Functional Affirmative Action Programs (FAAPs) by some contractors.
