Number: 300 Date: April 18, 2012 ADM Notice/Rescission


  1. SUBJECT: Notice of Rescission

  2. PURPOSE: Rescission of 18 Redundant or Outdated Directives.

  3. BACKGROUND: Since 1979, OFCCP has maintained a Directives System as one means of distributing guidance to its staff members and the public. The Directives System has been periodically reviewed and updated to eliminate obsolete or redundant materials. In December 2011, the Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development began reviewing all of the directives to determine whether they should remain active or be rescinded. As a result of this review, eighteen directives were identified as redundant because the subject matter contained in them is addressed in other guidance and resource materials, or the directives are no longer valid because the information is outdated. Therefore, the eighteen directives listed below are rescinded as of the effective date of this Notice.


  5. Holders of ADM and LEG Binders: File this Notice of Rescission behind the "SEL" tab in your Administrative Practices Binder.

    District and Area Offices EOSs and EOAs: File this Notice of Rescission behind the tab for ADM Directives in your FCCM Binder.
