On 19 August 2022, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) published a notice in the Federal Register alerting federal contractors that it received a Freedom of Information Act request from the Centre for Investigative Reporting seeking all federal prime contractors' and first-tier subcontractors' employment information report (EEO-1) type two consolidated reports from 2016 to 2020.

On 2 February 2023, OFCCP released a list of contractors whose EEO-1 reports will be released unless they submit written objections no later than 11:59pm Eastern Time on 7 February 2023. The two objections that OFCCP will entertain at this time are that the contractor:

  • was not a federal contractor during the relevant time period; or
  • previously submitted an objection to the disclosure of its EEO-1 data.

The list of contractors whose EEO-1 reports will be released is available here. Objections may be submitted to "[email protected]".
