Functional AAP (FAAP) Audits
One of our FAAP clients has undergone OFCCP audits of five of their 15 functional AAPs within the last two years. In each audit, Arbor acted as the agent of record, speaking on behalf of the organization with the OFCCP; preparing and submitting the Desk Audit materials; responding to OFCCP questions; and leading the audit team.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, the organization was transitioning from old HRIS and applicant tracking systems to new ones; re-aligning employees; implementing new initiatives; and undergoing merger integration.
Arbor developed a systematic, yet flexible approach to the audits, which created a template for the work, yet left room for customization. We did the heavy lifting of revisiting job groups, looking at internal equity and conducting a pre-audit up front, to avoid a long, protracted audit on the back end. We find this saves time and money in the long run and helps to maintain the integrity of the data and Desk Audit submission.
All audits were closed with compliance and very few questions from the agency.
Upfront work paid off with no violations, a shorter audit time frame and a smoother audit process.
