OFCCP Identifies 250 Federal and Federally Assisted Construction Contractors for Compliance Reviews

On June 5, 2023, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published its FY 2023 Construction Corporate Scheduling Announcement List (CSAL).

If a construction contractor is on the list, the compliance review will start once the contractor receives OFCCP’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved scheduling letter.
