First Source Hiring (FSHO)

For City Contractors

Effective July 25, 2012, the Office of Contract Compliance implemented a new compliance process for the First Source Hiring Ordinance (FSHO) by utilizing the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network.

The FSHO affidavit resides at the link. You will be required to register in order to access the affidavit. The affidavit can be found by clicking on the "Profile" tab. Scroll to the "Download Templates" section and download the required affidavit. The affidavit is to be completed and signed prior to being uploaded to the "Company Documents" section. Once uploaded, the affidavit is valid for one (1) year or twelve (12) months from the date they are uploaded.

The uploaded affidavit will be verified by the Bureau of Contract Administration (BCA) only if your company is the successful Proposer/Bidder selected for contract award. Upon BCA verification, the Awarding Authority shall award the contract.

As required by the affidavit, if your company has any job opportunities, you must submit the FSHO-1 form to the awarding department before the contract is executed.

For Selected City Contractors after contract is executed and when there is a new job opportunity as a result of contract

For City Departments ONLY to determine whether a contractor is subject to FSHO
