In that same news release, however, is a brief mention of a "compliance check" and contains a link to the Compliance Check Letter. Compliance Checks were one tool that OFCCP used in years past to conduct brief compliance assessments as well as a means of identifying federal contractors for full compliance evaluations based on those assessments.
For those of you not familiar with the Compliance Checks of years past, here is how the process works. OFCCP sends you a letter and requests the three items listed below. The letter says that you will receive a call from an OFCCP Compliance Officer (CO) to schedule an on-site so that the CO can inspect these three items. The new Compliance Check procedures now allow an alternative to the on-site and permits the company to submit the items by USPS or email within the 30 days.

- Examples of accommodations made for persons with disabilities (41 CFR § 60-1.12(a), § 60-300.80, and § 60-741.80).
