Committee Leaders Request Information from DOL on Collection of Compensation Data

Dear Secretary Solis:

We remain concerned about the policies and priorities of the Department of Labor's (the department) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). Recently, OFCCP proposed a number of requirements relating to the collection of compensation data from federal contractors. At the same time OCFFP proposed these requirements, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) studied the collection of employers' compensation data by the federal government and determined federal agencies should refrain from collecting compensation data until agencies develop a clearly articulated, comprehensive plan regarding how such data would be used. In light of NAS's study, we respectfully request information regarding the department's actions, including OFCCP's actions, relating to the collection of compensation data from employers.
