The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) suspended its operations on October 1, 2013 as part of the Federal government shutdown. Under the Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) appropriations contingency plan, OFCCP will furlough all of its employees during the shutdown. Federal contractors and subcontractors will not receive communications or correspondence from OFCCP staff during the shutdown.
It is unknown how long the shutdown will last. In the interim time period, we recommend contractors and subcontractors respond to audit requests issued prior to the suspension of operations.
