                 Executive Order 14069 of March 15, 2022
                Advancing Economy, Efficiency, and Effectiveness
                 in Federal Contracting by Promoting Pay Equity and
                 By the authority vested in me as President by the
                 Constitution and the laws of the United States of
                 America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
                 Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of my
                 Administration to eliminate discriminatory pay
                 practices that inhibit the economy, efficiency, and
                 effectiveness of the Federal workforce and the
                 procurement of property and services by the Federal
                 Government. The Office of Personnel Management
                 anticipates issuing a proposed rule that will address
                 the use of salary history in the hiring and pay-setting
                 processes for Federal employees, consistent with
                 Executive Order 14035 of June 25, 2021 (Diversity,
                 Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in the Federal
                 Workforce). The purpose of this order is to direct the
                 consideration of parallel efforts with respect to
                 Federal procurement.
                 Sec. 2. Economy, Efficiency, and Effectiveness in
                 Federal Procurement. Consistent with applicable law and
                 subject to the availability of appropriations, the
                 Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council, in consultation
                 with the Secretary of Labor and the heads of other
                 executive departments and agencies as appropriate,
                 shall consider issuing proposed rules to promote
                 economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in Federal
                 procurement by enhancing pay equity and transparency
                 for job applicants and employees of Federal contractors
                 and subcontractors. In doing so, the Federal
                 Acquisition Regulatory Council shall specifically
                 consider whether any such rules should limit or
                 prohibit Federal contractors and subcontractors from
                 seeking and considering information about job
                 applicants' and employees' existing or past
                 compensation when making employment decisions. The
                 Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council shall also
                 consider the inclusion of appropriate accountability
                 measures in any such rules.
                 Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order
                 shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
                (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or
                the head thereof; or
                (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget
                relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
                 (b) This order shall be implemented consistent with
                 applicable law and subject to the availability of
                [[Page 15316]]
                 (c) This order is not intended to, and does not,
                 create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural,
                 enforceable at law or in equity by any party against
                 the United States, its departments, agencies, or
                 entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any
                 other person.
                 (Presidential Sig.)
                 THE WHITE HOUSE,
                 March 15, 2022.
