Yes, there is! The Checklist is designed to help contractors assess their compliance with the affirmative action program (AAP) requirements of Section 503 by answering a series of “yes/no” questions about their company’s practices and policies.

Contractors are not required to use the Checklist, and using the Checklist does not ensure compliance with the Section 503 regulations. However, using the Checklist may help a contractor enhance its awareness of its AAP obligations and alert it to potential compliance problems that may need correction.

The Checklist for Compliance with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 can be found at on OFCCP’s Contractor Assessment Tools and Trackers Web page.
