Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA)

SBREFA Notice. In accordance with the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), the Small Business Administration (SBA) established a National Small Business Ombudsman to receive comments from small businesses about federal agency enforcement actions. If your company is a small business as defined by the SBA, you may file a comment with the Ombudsman by visiting the Ombudsman Web page at www.sba.gov/ombudsman, calling 1-888-734-3247, or by faxing your comment to 202-481-5719. You may also contact the Ombudsman by mail at the address below.

Small businesses should not fear retaliation for comments regarding enforcement actions by OFCCP. However, the filing of a comment by a small business does not affect OFCCP’s authority to enforce or otherwise seek contractor compliance with the laws and regulations it enforces, and filing a complaint is not a substitute for such compliance.
