Technical Feasibility Law and Legal Definition

According to 41 CFR 60-3.16 (Title 41 - Public Contracts And Property Management; Subtitle B - Other Provisions Relating To Public Contracts; Chapter 60 - Office Of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, Equal Employment Opportunity, Department Of Labor; Part 60-3 - Uniform Guidelines On Employee Selection Procedures (1978) (Definitions), technical feasibility means “the existence of conditions permitting the conduct of meaningful criterion-related validity studies. These conditions include: (1) An adequate sample of persons available for the study to achieve findings of statistical significance; (2) having or being able to obtain a sufficient range of scores on the selection procedure and job performance measures to produce validity results which can be expected to be representative of the results if the ranges normally expected were utilized; and (3) having or being able to devise unbiased, reliable and relevant measures of job performance or other criteria of employee adequacy. (refer Section 14B(2). With respect to investigation of possible unfairness, the same considerations are applicable to each group for which the study is made. (refer Section 14B(8)).”
