Affirmative Action Plan

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is committed to ensuring that Government contractors comply with the equal employment opportunity (EEO) and the affirmative action provisions of their contracts. Each Government contractor with 50 or more employees and $50,000 or more in government contracts is required to develop a written affirmative action program (AAP) for each of its establishments.

OFCCP administers and enforces Executive Order 11246, as amended, which prohibits federal contractors and federally-assisted construction contractors and subcontractors, who do over $10,000 in Government business in one year from discriminating in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The Executive Order also requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to insure that equal opportunity is provided in all aspects of their employment. A written affirmative action program helps the contractor identify and analyze potential problems in the participation and utilization of women and minorities in the contractor's workforce.

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552, UTHealth asserts that at least certain sections, exhibits, and compliance investigation files are exempt from the (FOIA) disclosure provisions.

Due Date: 60 days after the commencement of the new plan year.
