NCAP) Coming Soon

NCAP to Launch with Educational Webinar on August 26, 2022

On August 26, 2022, OFCCP is rolling out a new portal for construction employers to use in identifying subcontractors that are awarded contracts valued at $10,000 or more.  This portal will require prime/direct federal construction contractors as well as prime/direct federally-assisted construction contractors to enter information in the portal that identifies the subcontractor, including contact information, the contract value, estimated start and completion dates, the prime contractor’s information, and the place of contract performance.

Prime contractors are encouraged to adapt their bid solicitation notices to put potential subcontractors on notice up front that OFCCP now will know their identities and will be able to schedule them for equal opportunity and affirmative action compliance reviews more efficiently. 

“[insert prime contractor’s name] notifies bidders that, if awarded a subcontract of $10,000 or more, [prime contractor] is required to notify the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) of the subcontract award.  Bidders are encouraged to evaluate the equal employment opportunity and affirmative action legal and regulatory obligations imposed by OFCCP before submitting their bid.  https://www.dol.gov/agencies/ofccp/construction

OFCCP is also conducting a web seminar on Friday, August 26, at 2pm EST.  Employers are encouraged to attend to learn what, if any, consequences there are for primes that fail to notify OFCCP or whether there is any notification timeframe that primes must adhere to.  The first 3000 participants will be granted access to the webinar. Advance registration is not required. If you cannot attend the webinar, a recording will be available for viewing on the NCAP landing page in the near future.
