On June 11, 2008, Executive Order 12989 was amended to direct all executive departments and agencies to require contractors to electronically verify employment authorization of employees performing work under qualifying federal contracts.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) designated E-Verify as the electronic employment eligibility verification system that all federal contractors must use to comply.
If the University is a subcontractor under a federal contract that contains the FAR E-Verify clause (52.222-54 Employment Eligibility Verification), the provisions of that clause flow down to all tiers of subcontracts.
The sponsor may request the University’s E-Verify Company Profile (PDF) as a form of verification of compliance.
Act 157 of 2007 of the Arkansas Regular Legislative Session requires that any business or person responding to a Request for Proposal (RFP) for professional services, technical and general services or anycategory of construction in which the total dollar value is $25,000 or greater certify, prior to the award of thecontract, that they do not employ or contract with any illegal immigrants.
