regulations implementing the nondiscrimination and affirmative action 
regulations of section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as

for fourteen (14) days. If you have already commented on the proposed

comments received from the date of publication of the proposed rule 
through the close of the extended comment period.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 9, 2011, OFCCP published a 
proposed rule entitled, ``Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination 
Obligations of Contractors and Subcontractors Regarding Individuals 
with Disabilities'' (76 FR 77056). OFCCP was to receive comments on 
this NPRM on or before February 7, 2012.
    Various organizations and entities submitted requests to extend the 
comment period by an additional 90 days or more. We considered these 
requests and determined that it is appropriate to provide an additional 
14-day period for comment on the proposed regulation. We are, 
therefore, extending the comment period until, Tuesday, February 21, 
2012.
    Extension of Comment Period: OFCCP determined that the public could 
use additional time to review the potential impact of the proposed 
requirements. Therefore, to allow the public sufficient time to review 
and comment on the NPRM, OFCCP is extending the comment period until 
February 21, 2012.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 6th day of February, 2012.
