Affirmative Action Plans

What’s an Affirmative Action Plan? Can I get away without doing one?

You’re rolling the dice with the feds if you’re required to have an Affirmative Action Plan and fail to file one. Any organization that has more than 50 employees and receives more than $50,000 per year from federal contracts (or is a sub-contractor for a company that meets these criteria) must maintain an Affirmative Action Plan as required by federal law. Basically an AAP reports the demographic make-up of your workforce compared to the relevant labor pool. You must maintain and report detailed employee data on minorities, women, disabled persons and veterans employed in your workplace.

An AAP is like a scientific analysis of your employees. It begins with a statement verifying that your organization is an Equal Opportunity employer and ends with a detailed analysis of the targeted classes of workers (women, minorities, veterans and the disabled) currently employed in your workplace.

How do I do an AAP?

Overwhelming, isn’t it? Preparing an AAP is time-consuming and complicated. PMSI can prepare your Affirmative Action Plan(s) for you including narratives, job force analysis, workforce analysis, availability and utilization analysis, basic salary analysis, goals and progress on current goals. We’ll also coach one of your employees on how to maintain a system for managing applicant data. We make sure you comply with the government’s requirements.

Your AAP will be prepared by a highly trained and accredited HR professional(s). Our staff members are all certified by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI).


An Affirmative Action Plan typically ranges from $2000 to $5000 depending on the size and complexity of the organization, number of employees, and number of locations.
