Although many of you out there should already have received your notification letters from the EEOC and/or the OFCCP, respectively, this is a secondary reminder for those federal contractors that are required to file one or both of these, that your 2015 EEO-1 and VETS-4212 filings are due by September 30, 2015.
Prime contractors should also keep in mind that their subcontractors (with covered subcontracts) may be required to comply with these filings as well and so it might not be a bad idea to send a friendly reminder or to check with them to ensure they are complying.

Holomua Consulting Group would like to say thank you to all Veterans and Active Duty Service Members for your service to our Country. Since it is Veterans Day, we thought it appropriate to report on a topic related to Veterans. On September 25, 2014, the Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) of the U.S. Department of Labor issued its Final Rule revising the reporting requirements for federal contractors and subcontractors under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Act of 1974 (VEVRAA). Practically speaking, the actual reporting aspect of the Final Rule, which became effective on October 27, 2014, does not have an impact on contractors until the 2015 Reporting Period (August 1 - September 30, 2015) Nonetheless, it is helpful for federal contractors to be aware of the changes effected by the Final Rule, as it may have an impact on contractors' current data collection practices.
On September 30, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget approved the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs' (OFFCP) revised Scheduling Letter, Itemized Listing and Compliance Check Letter covering the Executive Order 11246 non-construction, supply and service aspects of the agency's program.
The revisions to these documents were made primarily to enable the OFCCP, as part of their compliance checks/evaluations, to determine contractor compliance with the requirements imposed by the revised Section 503 and VEVRAA regulations which took effect on March 24, 2014.
