Dear [insert name of CEO]:


On [insert date], the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP), contacted you by phone to request that you resubmit certain [insert as appropriate: employment activity or compensation] data which we determined to be unacceptable during the desk audit of your Affirmative Action Program (AAP).  The desk audit of your AAP was prepared according to Executive Order 11246, as amended. We asked you to provide the corrected data within 10 calendar days.  Further, we identified the unacceptable data, stated how they are unacceptable, and specified the required correction(s).

To date, we have not received the corrected [insert as appropriate: employment activity or compensation] data. Consequently, we are issuing this Notice to Show Cause why enforcement proceedings should not be initiated under 41 CFR 60-1.26.  You are required to submit the corrected data, as specified above, within 30 calendar days of receiving this Notice or we will recommend initiating enforcement proceedings following 41 CFR 60-1.26.

The submission of these data does not preclude the identification of further violations based upon a finding during the desk audit, or subsequent on-site review, that your AAP(s) does not meet the requirements of 41 CFR Parts 60-2, 60-741, or 60-300, or that your [insert as appropriate: establishment or functional unit] is not in compliance or has failed to comply in the past with the requirements of the Executive Order, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended and/or the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, and their implementing regulations.

Should you have any questions or wish to discuss a resolution to the issues raised herein, please contact [insert name of compliance officer] or [insert appropriate pronoun: his or her] supervisor, [insert name of supervisor], at [insert telephone number] to schedule a meeting or telephone conference.
