Government Procurement and Affirmative Action Compliance

Government Procurement Hero Image.

When attempting to secure and maintain contracts with federal, state, and local government agencies, your compliance with their guidelines is non-negotiable. Non-compliance does not just mean you will be passed over when the contracts are awarded; it may result in expensive litigation and significant damages awards. Under Federal Executive Order 11246, contractors with the federal government are required to maintain detailed and complex statistical analyses of their affirmative action and equal opportunity efforts. In addition to federal regulations, state and local governments increasingly are requiring affirmative action plans of their vendors.
