Hi Cheryl, It depends on whether your company is meeting its utilization goals. If it is, then current methods are working and while the company must remain diligent in its affirmative action efforts, but need not necessarily develop additional sources. However, if not meeting the goal, then current methods need to be evaluated and additional sources found. (In other words, if a company is not meeting the utilization goal with current methods, then additional sources need to be identified because current sources are not enough.) §60-741.45 Utilization goals. Part (e) states: Identification of problem areas. When the percentage of individuals with disabilities in one or more job groups, or in a contractor's entire workforce as provided in paragraph (d)(2)(i) of this section, is less than the utilization goal established in paragraph (a) of this section, the contractor must take steps to determine whether and where impediments to equal employment opportunity exist. When making this determination, the contractor must assess its personnel processes, the effectiveness of its outreach and recruitment efforts, the results of its affirmative action program audit, and any other areas that might affect the success of the affirmative action program.
