On August 10, 2018, OFCCP issued Directive 2018-04, Focused Reviews of Contractor Compliance with Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 503) and Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), which requires that future scheduling lists include focused reviews.

A focused review is an on-site review focused on one or more components of the contractor’s organization, or one or more aspects of the contractor’s employment practices. OFCCP may conduct a focused review to determine the contractor’s compliance with a particular legal authority or may conduct a focused review of a particular employment practice under all of the laws OFCCP enforces.

Currently, OFCCP conducts Section 503 and VEVRAA Focused Reviews, and Promotions and Accommodations Focused Reviews will be the next round of focused reviews that will be conducted.
