    Notice of Nondiscrimination Policy 
    Garver (also referred to as the Company) is fully
    committed to the concept and practice of equal
    opportunity and affirmative action in all aspects of
    In the preparation of this AAP, the Company has
    used the terminology used in E.O. 11246 and its
    implementing regulations as a guide. Therefore, the
    use of such terms as “underutilization,” “deficiency,”
    “concentration,” “affected class,” “goal,” “problem area,”
    etc., should not be construed as an admission by the
    Company, in whole or in part, that any problem area
    exists or that either minorities or women have been
    or are presently being underutilized, concentrated,
    or discriminated against in any way by the Company
    in violation of federal, state, or local fair employment
    practice laws. Furthermore, nothing contained in this
    AAP or its supporting data should be construed as
    an admission by the Company, in whole or in part,
    that it has contravened such federal, state, or local
    employment practice laws.
    In developing and implementing the AAP, the
    Company has been guided by its established policy
    of providing equal employment opportunity. Any
    placement goals that the Company has established
    herein are not intended as rigid, inflexible quotas
    that must be met, but rather as targets reasonably
    attainable by applying every good faith effort in
    implementing this AAP. The use of placement goals
    in this AAP is not intended, nor is the effect of such
    placement goals intended, to discriminate against
    an individual or group of individuals with respect to
    any employment opportunities for which he, she,
    or they are qualified on the grounds that he, she, or
    they are not the beneficiaries of affirmative action
    themselves. Nothing herein is intended to sanction
    the discriminatory treatment of any person. Indeed,
    all employment decisions at the Company are made
    based on job-
    related criteria. Thus, this AAP has been
    developed in strict reliance upon the Guidelines on
    Affirmative Action issued by the Equal Employment
    Opportunity Commission (EEOC) (29 C.F.R. Part 1608).
    While Garver firmly believes in wide dissemination of
    its affirmative action policies and equal employment
    opportunity practices, this AAP contains certain
    proprietary information relating to the Company’s
    business that must be kept confidential. The
    detailed information provided in good faith as
    a part of the AAP contains specific information
    that, if disseminated, could be detrimental to the
    competitive and business interests of this company.
    At a minimum, the complexity of this data is subject
    to misinterpretation and misuse, which again can
    be very harmful to business goals and objectives
    solely unrelated to the affirmative action and equal
    employment opportunity concept.
    Therefore, even though the Company is justifiably
    proud of the progress and placement goals that are
    described in the following pages, this AAP and its
    support data are to be disclosed only to individuals,
    companies, and government agencies where such
    individuals or entities have a legitimate business
    interest or legal entitlement to the information.
    Garver specifically requests the following:
    1. If this information is submitted to the Office of
    Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
    pursuant to the relevant Executive Order and
    regulations, it is to be considered confidential
    and not subject to disclosure without notifying
    Garver of the agency’s decision to disclose and
    providing the Company with ample time to
    contest the disclosure.
    2. If this information is supplied to another
    government contractor, EEOC representative,
    or any other person who is given access to
    the AAP, it is not to be copied, reproduced, or
    disclosed without prior notification to Garver.
    3. No information contained in the AAP is to be
    copied, removed from the premises, or released
    to other individuals without prior notification to
    4. All monitoring system reports as required
    by federal regulations and laws have been
    completed. Reports that require specific
    data such as names of employees and salary
    information are not an official part of this AAP.
    This information is on file at the Company as
    Documentation and Supporting Data for AAP
    Reports and is available for review only as
    required by law.
    The material set forth in this AAP is deemed to include
    personnel files, investigatory records, trade secrets,
    confidential operations information, confidential
    statistical data and other confidential commercial and
    financial data, within the meaning of the Freedom
    of Information Act (5 U.S.C. Section 552), Title VII of
    the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended) (42 U.S.C.
    Sections 2000e et seq.), and the Trade Secrets Act
    (18 U.S.C. Section 1905, and 44 U.S.C. Section 3508),
    the disclosure of which is prohibited by law and
    would subject the individual making the disclosure to
    criminal and/or civil sanctions.
    This AAP does not constitute an express or implied
    contract between the Company and its employees,
    job applicants, or other persons. Nothing in this AAP
    provides any individual or group with a private right of
    action against Garver.
