According to the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), all federal contractors and subcontractors should collect and analyze information on applicants and hiring practices. Please assist us in meeting our compliance requirement by completing the voluntary disclosure form (Applicant Data Form).
Applicant Definition – To better assist AQAF in determining who is to be considered an applicant, the following criteria and guidelines are used to establish the definition. “An applicant is a person who:
- (1) expresses interest
- (2) in an open employment opportunity
- (3) by properly completing the application process,
- (4) is minimally qualified,
- (5) is considered for the position, and
- (6) who doesn’t withdraw from the process.”
All six criteria must be met before an individual is to be considered an applicant and included in the reporting data.
Unsolicited resumes, resumes failing to meet the minimum qualifications as defined by the open position, information sent with no title identifier or salary requirements, or applications received after the posted deadline will not be considered.
