OFCCP has posted a notice informing contractors of the date by which they must begin using the 2006-2010 Census EEO Tabulation in the development of their written affirmative action programs (AAPs).
Federal contractors must begin using the 2010 EEO Tab to develop all AAPs commencing on or after January 1, 2014. All 2013 plans may be developed using the Census 2000 Special EEO File. Contractors may begin using the 2010 EEO Tab immediately, if they prefer.
From the notice:
OFCCP reached out to contractors and others to obtain their views on a range of issues related to transitioning to the new EEOTab. By hosting two nationwide Web chats, OFCCP recognized that some contractors have already prepared their AAPs for 2013 using the earlier data. OFCCP further recognized that, for many contractors, converting their IT systems and availability calculations to the new data will take time due to changes in the coding and categorization of data in the 2010 EEO Tab. Therefore, OFCCP will permit contractors to continue to use the Census 2000 Special EEO File in the development of all AAPs commencing in 2013.
Contractors must begin using the 2010 EEO Tab to develop all AAPs that commence on or after January 1, 2014. OFCCP will, likewise, begin using the 2010 EEO Tab to evaluate the reasonableness of all AAPs commencing on or after January I, 2014. Contractors may, however, begin to use the 2010 EEO Tab in the development of their AAPs immediately, if they wish to do so.
