Have you ever wondered how the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) determines which contractors will receive a scheduling letter? There are two parts to the process: 1) developing the list and 2) selecting contractors from the list. This article outlines the standard process for scheduling contractors, the additional situations that could subject a federal contractor to a compliance review, and the exceptions to the established scheduling procedures.

How is the list developed?

The OFCCP National Office uses multiple information sources to establish an overall list of federal contractors, which is called the Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS). Sources include:

  • federal acquisition and procurement databases;
  • EEO-1 employer information
