Contractors that meet certain jurisdiction thresholds have an obligation to develop and maintain written Affirmative Action Programs (AAPs).
The Contractor Portal is a new OFCCP platform where covered federal contractors and subcontractors must certify, on an annual basis, whether they are meeting their requirement to develop and maintain annual AAPs. The portal allows multiple users from individual organizations to register, manage records, and certify each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable.
The Contractor Portal officially launched on February 1, 2022 and contractors are now able to access and register their organization in the portal. Beginning March 31, 2022, federal contractors will be able to certify the status of their AAPs for each establishment and/or functional/business unit, as applicable.
Use 2018 EEO-1 data when registering for the Contractor Portal
Enter EEO-1 identifiers from the 2018 EEO-1 report only
- The Contractor Portal's registration process is configured to work only with information from the 2018 EEO-1 report. At this time, no other versions of the EEO-1 report are supported.
- If you have filed a 2018 EEO-1 report and attempted to register using the 2018 EEO-1 identifiers for the “Headquarter/Company Number” and “Establishment/Unit Number” fields and receive an error, please contact the Contractor Portal Technical Help Desk for assistance through the OFCCP Contractor Portal Technical Help Request Form. Do not attempt to register for the portal using the “Identifiers Not Known Path,” as this will result in the portal account not being matched to the company records in the system and data for your company will not pre-populate.
Parent Companies who did not file a 2018 EEO-1 report, Universities, or other federal contractors
- Parent Companies who did not file a 2018 EEO-1 report, Universities, or other federal contractors or subcontractors who have not received any invitation from OFCCP to register still can register and add records for establishments. The only identifier required to register for the Contractor Portal is the Employer Identification Number (EIN). Where there is no EEO-1 information, register using the “Identifiers Not Known Path.” To complete registration for the Contractor Portal without 2018 EEO-1 identifiers, please follow the instructions for “Identifiers Not Known Path” in the OFCCP Contractor Portal User Guide.
Requesting a Bulk Upload/Modification of Establishments or Functional/Business Units
After registering a Parent Company in the Contractor Portal, a contractor should update records by modifying or adding applicable establishments or functional/business units to the Parent Company profile. Companies with 100 or more establishments or functional/business units may request to have establishments or functional/business units modified or uploaded in bulk by using the Bulk Upload/Modification Template.
