OFCCP issues two directives rescinding a total of 31 redundant or outdated directives
The OFCCP has recently posted on its website two new directives which rescind a total of 31 redundant or outdated directives. The first directive, Number 300, dated April 18, 2012, rescinds 18 directives. The second directive, Number 302, dated June 14, 2012, rescinds 13 directives.
Since 1979, the OFCCP has maintained a Directives System as one means of distributing guidance to its staff members and the public. According to the agency, the Directives System has been periodically reviewed and updated to eliminate obsolete or redundant materials. In December 2011, the Division of Policy, Planning and Program Development began reviewing all of the directives to determine whether they should remain active or be rescinded. As a result of this review, the OFCCP identified a total of 31 directives for rescission because the information they contain is addressed in other guidance and resource materials, or the directives are no longer valid because the information is outdated.
