According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website, the OFCCP mailed 1,000 Corporate Scheduling Announcement letters (CSAL) to federal contractor establishments on Feb. 1. 

The CSAL is a notification to an establishment that has been selected by the Federal Contractor Selection System to undergo a compliance evaluation during the scheduling cycle. According to the OFCCP, the purposes of the CSAL are to:

  • provide the contractor establishment’s internal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) staff at least 45 days advance notice to obtain management support for EEO and self-audit efforts;
  • encourage contractors to take advantage of OFCCP compliance assistance offerings;
  • encourage contractors to focus on self-audit efforts that, if problems are adequately analyzed and corrected, saves OFCCP time/resources when it does an evaluation; and
  • help contractors manage/budget the amount of time required for evaluation activity.
According to the OFCCP’s website, scheduling letters, which notify a particular contractor establishment that it has been scheduled for a compliance evaluation, will go out starting March 19.
