Unique Challenges in Higher Education

Our consultants understand the complex needs of higher education institutions when it comes to OFCCP compliance. Colleges and universities with federal contracts must follow regulations designed for traditional employers, making compliance with these requirements far more nuanced. We are here to serve as your trusted partner.

Questions higher education institutions should ask themselves if they have federal contracts:
  • Are you prepared for the "campus-like" setting requirement?
    OFCCP's new scheduling letter requires significantly more data during a compliance review than ever before. 
  • What is your compensation structure?
    Compensation structures in colleges and universities are often designed for multiple types of employees, making required analyses more complex.
  • What does your employee population look like?
    It’s important to consider the reporting differences for faculty v. non-faculty, or tenure v. non-tenure. 
  • What are the employment scenarios like at your school?
    Graduate assistants and part-time workers may complicate how employees are reported.
  • How many campuses does your school have?
    Many higher education institutions consider Functional Affirmative Action Plans (FAAPs) to group their employees by department, rather than location. 
  • How recent or complete is your availability analysis?
    Staff availability may be difficult to estimate.
