Hi Amy, thank you for your question. The answer depends on whether or not this is your company's very first federal contract or subcontract. If you don't have any existing federal contracts or subcontracts and this will be the first one if awarded, then at this current point in time, you are not yet a federal contractor, and therefore not bound by any of the obligations that attach to a federal contract. These obligations become effective only when you enter into a federal contract. If on the other hand, your company already has other active federal contracts or subcontracts that meet the threshold for VEVRAA coverage, it doesn't matter if this bid has not yet been awarded. Your company already is under obligation to list all of your job openings (with the exception of executive and senior management positions, internal positions, and jobs lasting 3 days or less) with the Employment Service Delivery System in the state(s) where the job(s) is/are located. This requirement for mandatory job listing can be found under 38 USC Sec. 4212 and 41 CFR Section 60-300.5(a)(2-6).
You can use this OFCCP audit checklist to ensure you're doing what is required to maintain OFCCP's regulations including VEVRAA, Section 503, and EO 11246. Or request a demo to streamline your compliance and recruiting efforts.
