AUDIT ALERT: Good Faith Efforts   
Date: May 21st, 2015

OFCCP’s compliance officers have taken a stronger stance on contractor Good Faith Efforts (GFEs).  OFCCP’s measure of compliance has fundamentally shifted away from their typical job posting/recruitment effort requests.  Now, OFCCP is requesting information not only related to women and minorities, but individuals with disabilities and protected veterans.  Contractors must now track recruitment source/agency names, contact names and phone numbers, and the group(s) targeted by particular agencies/sources.  In addition, Contractors must evaluate the effectiveness of the results of their outreach efforts.   

Kairos has developed Compliance Toolkits designed to assist Federal contractors in listing, tracking and evaluating the effectiveness of their efforts for both protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.  If you have not done so already, please request a copy of your compliance toolkit today!


Please contact Nicolas Paul (nick@kairosservicesinc.com) or Norma Brito (norma@kairosservicesinc.com) with questions or comments.  Feel free to call if you prefer.
