2N04 Linkage Agreeements for Individuals with Disabilities and Protected Veterans

Linkage arrangements involving recruitment or referral sources for individuals with disabilities and protected veterans may be particularly useful when either or both of the following exist:

  • A review of employee records, job applications and applicant flow data shows that there are few applicants who are members of these covered groups; or
  • The annual assessment of outreach and recruitment for individuals with disabilities and/or protected veterans shows that the contractor’s efforts have not been effective.

If the contractor needs new linkage relationships, the CO will follow the same steps to establish appropriate linkages for these groups as he or she would when establishing linkages to meet affirmative action goals for other groups.
