8J03 Who Receives the 15-Day Notice

The CO addresses a 15-Day Notice and the letter of confirmation referenced in FCCM 8J02 to the top official at the establishment under review, or the top official at 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 requested in writing that the CO provide a copy of the review or investigation correspondence to an outside representative such as an outside counsel or consultant, the CO will also send a copy to the designated representative. If the CO provides copies to a corporate CEO, other contractor official and/or a designated representative, the CO will include a “cc:” line on all copies indicating the people to whom the CO sent the Notice.

The CO always sends a 15-Day Notice via certified mail, return receipt requested. Email and facsimile are also permissible options.
