What Is AAP Certification?
Affirmative Action Certification is a new federal mandate by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP) requiring both Federal Contractors and Federal Subcontractors with over 50 employees verify that they have and maintain a current Affirmative Action Plan. Federal Contractors must certify through the OFCCP’s Contractor Portal by June 30th.
Why Was The Portal Created?
This new requirement stems from the outcome of a 2016 finding by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). GAO’s findings included that the OFCCP had no database or way of identifying contractors and subcontractors, and that the same employers were being audited repeatedly. OFCCP responded by requiring federal contractors and subcontractors certify using their Contractor Portal .

What Is The Contractor Portal?
The Contractor Portal is a new OFCCP platform where covered federal contractors and subcontractors must certify, on an annual basis, whether they are meeting their requirement to develop and maintain annual AAPs. The portal allows multiple users from individual organizations to register, manage records, and certify each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable.
When Did The Contractor Portal Launch?
The Contractor Portal officially launched on February 1, 2022 and contractors are now able to access and register their organization in the portal. Beginning March 31, 2022, federal contractors will be able to certify the status of their AAPs for each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable.
