During the on-site review, or while interviewing employees and managers, issues may arise that were not identified during the desk audit review. If this happens, the CO must appropriately follow up on the new issues. If the issue concerns a possible systemic violation by the contractor or is relevant to the compliance evaluation in progress, the CO must include the matter in the ongoing investigation. If the matter is one alleging an individual instance of discrimination, or if someone files a complaint during the ongoing compliance review, the CO must discuss the matter with his or her supervisor to determine how to best proceed.106
