Annual Vendor Notification Letter to Supplier Base re: requirements of Executive Order 11246

Anonymous - January 1, 1970
Back to Ask the Experts

Good evening to you!

My company includes a clause, incorporated by reference, regarding our compliance with Executive Order 11246, in every RFQ, Purchase Order & Subcontract agreement that is sent. This ensures our entire supplier base, on a continually occurring basis, is notified of this requirement with each solicitation and/or purchase order transaction that occurs. Is there an additional requirement for a standalone, annual email notification to be sent to our supplier base, or does this continually occurring notification satisfy the requirement and forego the need to send a standalone Vendor Notification Letter annually? Are these two separate obligations or are we in compliance? And if they are two separate obligations, could you direct me to the regulatory guidance that indicates as much. I am scouring the DOL website and the internet in general trying to definitively answer this question.

We are a company with a supplier base of over 5,000 vendors and I am trying to understand the requirement and ensure compliance.

Thank you in advance!
