Bidders who seek to do business with the Department of Education must have in place an acceptable written "Affirmative Action Plan" (AAP) in accordance with the Request for Proposal and Bidder’s Instructions. If your company’s plan is not on file with the Office of Equal Opportunity, the Department of Education’s policy, as expressed in the contract proposal, requires the rejection of a vendor/contractor’s bid as unresponsive to the required terms, conditions and specifications.
The Contract Compliance unit reviews, monitors, assists and maintains all documents relating to vendor submissions of their Affirmative Action Plans (AAP) and Workforce Profile Forms (WPF). For more information on the Department's requirements and to view sample AAPs click here
The Contract Compliance unit is also responsible for the Minority and Women Business Enterprise Program.
