This document extends the comment period for the proposed rule for fourteen (14) days. If you have already commented on the proposed rule you do not need to resubmit your comment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 26, 2011, OFCCP published a proposed rule entitled “Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors Regarding Protected Veterans” (76 FR 23358). OFCCP was to receive comments on this NPRM on or before June 27, 2011.

Various organizations submitted requests to extend the comment period by an additional sixty (60) days or more. We considered these requests and determined that it is appropriate to provide an additional 14-day period for comment on the proposed regulation. We are, therefore, extending the comment period until Monday, July 11, 2011.

Extension of Comment Period

OFCCP determined that the public could use additional time to review the potential impact of the proposed requirements. Therefore, to allow the public sufficient time to review and comment on the NPRM, OFCCP is extending the comment period until July 11, 2011.
