Beginning in January 2011, OFCCP implemented its new audit strategy that moved the philosophy of compliance evaluations from management to enforcement. Director Shiu discontinued the previous compliance evaluation strategy of Active Case Management (ACM) and rang in the new year with a new directive, Active Case Enforcement (ACE). The switch to ACE is part of the OFCCP’s plan to continually increase efforts to enforce compliance with the laws and regulations it oversees.
While the change brings an increase to the scope of compliance evaluations, the selection procedure remains unchanged. The OFCCP will continue to use the Federal Contractor Selection System (FCCS) to select establishments for compliance evaluation.
Below are highlights from the OFCCP website’s FAQs on FCCS.
