The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has made available on its website two separate notices that rescind a total of 31 previously-issued agency directives. According to the OFCCP, these directives involved subject matter addressed by other guidance and resource materials and were therefore redundant, or contained outdated and thus invalid information. Notice of Rescission Number 300 (pdf) dated April 18, 2012 rescinds 18 directives, while Notice of Rescission Number 302 (pdf) dated June 14, 2012 rescinds an additional 13. The issuance dates of these 18 directives range from 1972 to 1998. As stated in the Notices, the OFCCP’s Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development began reviewing past directives for relevancy in December 2011. A complete list of the specific rescinded directives is included in the Notices.
