Statement of Need:

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs intends to issue a final rule to modify regulations that delineate procedures and standards the agency follows when issuing pre-enforcement notices and securing compliance through conciliation. This final rule would support OFCCP in fulfilling its mission to ensure equal employment opportunity.

Summary of the Legal Basis:

Executive Order 11246 (as amended), section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act (as amended), and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (as amended).


OFCCP considered the alternative of maintaining the current regulations established in the 2020 rule.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits:

The Department prepared estimates of the anticipated costs and discussed benefits associated with the proposed rule.
