Is your organization required to have an Affirmative Action Plan?

As a condition of doing business with the federal government, qualifying contractors or subcontractors must have an Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) in place for the purpose of promoting equal employment and improving opportunities for women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans. AAPs are not only complex to create and maintain, they are also subject to audit by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and could results in an organization losing its federal contracts and/or being assessed penalties.

If you are a federal contractor or subcontractor with 50 or more employees and either:

  • have a federal government contract worth at least $50,000,
  • serve as a depository for government funds in any amount, or
  • are a financial institution which is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. Savings Bonds and Savings Notes
  • are a bank or credit union that is federally insured under FDIC or NCUA
