Staffing Agency-Required Notice & Compliance

Paige H. - Mar 30, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

We are a Federal Prime contractor & Sub-Contractor who places IT employees on Federal and State contracted projects. These are our employees working on a state or federal work site. Sometimes we must reach out to a staffing company to fill specialized positions when our sourcing/postings are not producing qualified candidates. I’ve been told previously that being a Federal Contractor, any staffing company or sub-contractor we use, whether for a Federal or State position, must be compliant with OFCCP guidelines when recruiting and also receive the required “our company is a federal contractor” notice.

Two questions:
1. If our state position pays our company with state funds, must our staffing/sub-contractor company follow OFCCP guidelines and also receive the required notice?
2. If so, do we need to require them to send recruiting documentation or just have it available in case of an audit?

Thank you.
