Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
The Directives System has been periodically reviewed and updated to eliminate obsolete or redundant materials. Since December 2011, the Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development has been reviewing directives to determine whether they should remain active or be rescinded. As a result of this review, this page provides access to all current OFCCP Directives that have been issued as interpretative guidance and their new reference numbers which consist of the fiscal year of issuance followed by a sequential number. Directives are listed in order of release date.
The Directives below are presented in both HTML and PDF Format. In order to "view" these documents you need what is referred to as a "reader." The reader is software that converts PDF files to viewable documents that will appear on your monitor. There are several software publishers that provide free reader software for downloading. For your convenience we have provided a link to the free downloadable software provided by Adobe Systems Incorporated.
