OFCCP Continues to use CSAL for advance notice of reviews

AAAA has learned that OFCCP will continue sending Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSALs) as advance notice for establishments that have been identified for potential compliance reviews. The OFCCP has stated that the next round of CSALs will be mailed out in the next two months.

CSALS are defined by OFCCP as:

notification to a corporation that two or more of its establishments are on
the list of contractor establishments selected to undergo a compliance
evaluation during the scheduling cycle. The list is generated from OFCCP's
Federal Contractor Selection System (FCSS). It is not a letter scheduling a
compliance evaluation. The purposes of the CSAL are to:
Provide the
contractor's internal EEO staff notice to obtain management support for EEO and
self-audit efforts;
Encourage contractors to take advantage of OFCCP
compliance assistance offerings;
Encourage contractors to focus on
self-audit efforts that, if problems are adequately analyzed and corrected,
saves OFCCP time/resources when we do an evaluation; and
Help contractors
manage/budget the amount of time required for evaluation activity.

The CSAL is not the official scheduling letter that is sent when an establishment has been selected for a compliance evaluation.

Thanks to Pat Parrish and the NILG for this information....
