You know, it’s not easy you certainly, the nice thing is at least with respect to the written Affirmative Action plan obligation on the federal side you have to at least have 50 employees, which isn’t a lot. But you have to have at least 50 employees and a contract of a value of $50,000.00 or more.
On the state side, all you need is 40 fulltime employees but you need a contract of $100,000.00 or more. So the theory is that if you meet those thresholds whether it’s a state threshold or a federal threshold you’re going to be in a company of sufficient size. And I guess have a contract, a government contract with a sufficient value to kind of be able to handle the burden, so to speak, that’s imposed by having to comply with these additional regulations.
