force in each trade on all construc-

tion work in the covered area, are as



Goals for minority participation for

Goals for female participation in

each trade: 6.9%

These goals are applicable to all of

the Contractor’s construction work

(whether or not it is Federal or

federally assisted) performed in the

covered area. If the Contractor per-

forms construction work in a geo-

graphical area located outside of the

covered area, it shall apply the goals

established for such geographical

area where the work is actually per-

formed. With regard to this second

area, the Contractor also is subject

tions in 41 CFR Part 60-4 shall be

ty and female employment and train-

ing must be substantially uniform

ly on each of its projects. The

transfer of minority or female em-

ployees or trainees from Contractor

to Contractor or from project to pro-

ject for the sole purpose of meeting

the Contractor’s goals shall be a vio-

lation of the contract, the Executive

Order and the regulations in 41 CFR

Part 60-4. Compliance with the

goals will be measured against the

total work hours performed.

ten notification to the Director of the

Office of Federal Contract Compli-
