In an important case that addresses which entities can be considered federal “subcontractors” under federal affirmative action regulations, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Administrative Review Board (ARB) rejected the argument of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) that a hospital’s participation in the Department of Defense’s TRICARE program made the hospital a subcontractor subject to OFCCP jurisdiction.
