Update Regarding Affirmative Action Plans (AAPs)

Federal Supply and service contractors with 50 or more employees and a contract worth more than $50,000 are required to prepare written AAPs.  Of note, federal construction contractors are not currently required to develop written AAPs.  Earlier this month, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) announced that as of January 1, 2014, federal contractors must start using the 2010 census codes rather than the 2000 census codes.  In other words, it is acceptable to use the 2010 or 2000 codes for 2013 AAPs, but the 2014 AAPs must use the 2010 census codes.  Harmon & Davies has already started using the 2010 census codes in the 2013 AAPs that we are preparing.
