7-8.1 Affirmative Action Program Requirements

Except for exempt contracts, each nonconstruction supplier and each (nonconstruction) subcontractor with 50 or more employees and (1) a contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more or (2) government bills of lading that in any 12-month period, total, or can reasonably be expected to total, $50,000 or more, is required to develop a written affirmative action program for each of its establishments. More information can be found in 41 CFR 60-1.40.

Except for exempt contracts, construction suppliers are required to meet affirmative action requirements that apply to covered geographical areas or projects, and the applicable requirements of 41 CFR 60-1 and 60-4. A CO contemplating a construction purchase project over $10,000 within a geographic area not known to be covered by specific affirmative action goals must request the most current information from the OFCCP regional office before issuing the RFP. COs must give written notice to the OFCCP regional office within 10 days after award of a contract subject to these requirements.
