Are you required to develop an Affirmative Action Plan?  

Employers who are contractors (or subcontractors) of the federal government with 50 or more employees and a single federal government contract or subcontract of at least $50,000 must prepare an annual written Affirmative Action Plan (AAP). The Office of Federal Compliance Programs (OFCCP) audits government contractors and subcontractors to enforce compliance, and may impose penalties on employers who do not comply or have an inadequate AAP.
