The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) likely will be sending out advanced courtesy notifications (formerly known as Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters or CSALs), to establishments that have been selected to undergo a compliance evaluation during the upcoming scheduling cycle. This letter does not schedule a compliance evaluation, but instead notifies a facility that it will probably undergo a compliance evaluation during the next scheduling cycle.
Although the OFCCP has, at times in the past, sent these letters to corporate headquarters, the agency will send these letters directly to the facilities targeted for an evaluation. Thus, it is important for employers ensure that managers or human resources personnel in facilities located away from corporate headquarters are aware that they need to forward the letter to corporate headquarters as soon as possible after it is received. Forwarding the letter immediately will give the employer more time to begin preparations for a compliance audit.
