OFCCP's Director Patricia A. Shiu discusses the Fiscal Year 2011 budget and her priorities for the coming year in a video located on the OFCCP website. In the video, Director Shiu says, the 2011 budget request is for $113 million. The request will make it possible to maintain the 2010 staffing levels. The agency will broaden its enforcement efforts, renew its commitment to strengthen affirmative action and enforcement on behalf of women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities. The program will also focus on individual cases of harassment, retaliation, termination and failure to promote. OFCCP will increase monitoring of contractor self audits and will renew its emphasis on construction reviews as well. The Secretary's vision of "good jobs for everyone" will mean that the agency will enforce the laws with the goal of protecting workers, the nation's "most important asset."
