Compliance Assistance - OASAM

 Quick Links

The Department of Labor is committed to providing its customers - America's employers, workers, job seekers and retirees - with clear and easy-to-access information on how to comply with federal employment laws. Such information and guidance is known as "compliance assistance."

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (OASAM), through the Department's Procurement Executive in the Business Operations Center, is responsible for the overall implementation of the Department's procurement and grant programs and ensures that these programs are performed in accordance with the appropriate laws and regulations. Through delegations of grant and procurement authority these programs are implemented through a decentralized procurement structure via several operational acquisition and assistance offices.

OASAM (Civil Rights Center) also enforces various Federal statutes and regulations that (1) prohibit discrimination in DOL funded programs and activities; (2) prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability by certain public entities and in DOL conducted activities; and, (3) prohibit discrimination within DOL itself.
