The OFCCP has recently begun mailing Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters (CSAL) to supply and service government contractors with two or more establishments that will be scheduled for a compliance evaluation this scheduling cycle. The CSALs will be followed by approximately 5,000 Scheduling Letters that will be mailed between March 10, 2008 and September 30, 2008.

Establishments that are identified in the CSAL should immediately begin to prepare for the compliance evaluation that will be scheduled at a later date. Once the Scheduling Letter is received, the establishment will have only 30 days to submit the materials requested in the letter.

Because the CSAL is normally sent to the company’s CEO or the “facility manager,” there is often a delay in getting the notice to the proper person in the human resources department. We recommend that clients alert their CEO’s office and their facility managers that they may be receiving a CSAL within in the next few weeks so that there will be no delay forwarding the CSAL to the proper person.
