Developing and evaluating enrollment goals and timetables.

(1) Goals and timetables must be based upon the sponsor's enrollment analysis of its underutilization of minorities and women and its entire affirmative action program. Specific enrollment goals for minorities and a separate single goal for women may be acceptable unless a particular group is employed in a substantially disparate manner. In such a case, separate goals must be established for the disparate group. An example of such a situation would be where a specific minority group of women were underutilized even though the sponsor had achieved its enrollment goals for women generally. A separate, additional goal should be established to increase the enrollment of this specific group.
(2) In establishing the enrollment goals and timetables, the sponsor should establish reasonable goals that can be achieved through a good faith effort.
(3) In evaluating whether a sponsor has satisfied the affirmative action requirements of these rules, the WSATC must determine whether the sponsor has made a good faith effort to do so.
(4) The sponsor's good faith efforts shall be judged by whether the sponsor is following its affirmative action program and attempting to make it work. A specific example of a good faith effort by a sponsor would be when a sponsor conducts evaluations of its affirmative action program and makes the necessary changes to achieve success in the attainment of its goals.
