COs address an NOV to the top official at the establishment under review, or the top official of the construction company in the economic area being reviewed. A copy is sent to the CEO of the corporation, if the establishment or construction company is part of a larger corporation. If the contractor has requested in writing that the CO provide a copy of the review or investigation correspondence to an outside counsel or consultant, the CO will also send a copy to the designated representative. When the CO provides copies to a corporate CEO, other contractor official, or a designated representative, the CO will include a “cc:” line on all copies indicating the people to whom the CO sent the NOV.
The CO always sends an NOV via email or facsimile, and certified mail, return receipt requested.
