One of the most common questions from federal contractors is, “How does the OFCCP select a federal contractor’s establishment for a compliance evaluation?”
In a nutshell, the OFCCP uses a facially neutral selection system called the FCSS (Federal Contractor Selection System). This electronic selection system uses data feeds from several information sources including EEO-1, federal procurement databases, Dun & Bradstreet data and more. Once the data is in the system, the National Office of the OFCCP organizes the data in an orderly and neutral fashion and houses locations selected for evaluation within the system. At selected intervals (typically October and May/June) contractor locations are released by the FCSS and district offices are responsible for scheduling the compliance review.
