Contracting and administering agencies may use preconstruction conferences to discuss any aspect of the contractual requirements of a project including EEO. OFCCP regional, district or area office staff may participate in these conferences at the invitation of the contracting agency. The contracting agency reviews the construction contractor’s nondiscrimination and affirmative action obligations, including applicable minority and female participation rate goals for the geographical area in which work is to be performed, and the contractor’s reporting and recordkeeping requirements necessary to demonstrate compliance. COs may also send out a letter to summarize EEO obligations enforced by OFCCP and to offer compliance assistance for new construction contractors.189
