Office of First Source Compliance

First Source Law

Workforce Intermediary Establishment and Reform of the First Source Amendment Act of 2011, effective February 24, 2012 (D.C. Law 19-84).

The First Source Law requires all beneficiaries of contractual agreements totaling $300,000 or more to enter into a First Source Employment Agreement with the Department of Employment Services.

For more than 30 years, First Source has been one of the driving forces in the District’s strategy to reduce unemployment by ensuring that D.C. residents receive priority consideration for new jobs created by local government-assisted projects or contracts.

First Source Registration and Reporting Systems

First Source Online Registration and Reporting System (FORRS) is the sole registration and reporting system for companies responsible for managing and reporting the First Source contract compliance of the 51% Hiring requirements.

FORRS Upgrades

The Office of First Source Compliance has made upgrades to FORRS to enhance monitoring features and support first source reporting.  Some new features include additional data fields that capture and track direct and indirect labor costs, as well as workforce statistics such as job titles, employee attrition and referral sources of new hires.

The LCPtracker is the sole reporting system for companies responsible for managing and reporting the First Source Hours Worked Percentages requirements.
