Webinars to train new federal contractors in compliance issues

The U.S. Department of Labor Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is offering a series ofdol Webinars to help businesses that have federal contracts involving American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to comply with the law.

Each of the Webinars is offered a week apart, on Sept. 16, Sept. 23, and Sept. 30.

• Sept. 16: “New Federal Supply and Service Contractors: What You Need to Know.” If your company provides goods or services to a Federal agency, or provides goods or services to another company that supplies a Federal agency, you may be a “federal contractor or subcontractor.”  This Webinar will cover supply and service contractor obligations and what you need to know and do to be in compliance.  

• Sept. 23. “Construction Contractors: 16 Steps to Affirmative Action Compliance.” Construction federal contractors are required to take specific affirmative action steps—16 to be exact.  In this Webinar, federal and federally-assisted construction contractors will learn about these 16 steps and what to expect during a compliance evaluation.

• Sept. 30. “Federal Contracting and Procurement Officers: EEO and FAR.” Did you know that each contracting agency should include the equal employment opportunity clauses as provided for in the Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Act of 1974, as amended?  In this Webinar, you will receive a brief overview of OFCCP, federal contracting agencies’ and officers’ responsibilities under these laws, and its relationship with the Federal Acquisition Regulations, Parts 22 and 52.

Each of the Webinars is approximately 90 minutes long, including 30 minutes of questions and answer opportunities. Webinar leaders encourage participate to e-mail questions ahead of time.
