DOD, GSA, and NASA Propose to Strengthen Human Trafficking Protections in Federal Contracts

On September 26, 2013, DOD, GSA, and NASA issued a proposed rule implementing human trafficking prevention requirements in Executive Order 13627 and Title XVII of the 2013 NDAA. This proposed rule is part of a series of proposed rules aimed at implementing the requirements in the Executive Order and 2013 NDAA, as well as the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. The proposed rule would prohibit all federal contractors from the following:

The rule would also require contractors to protect and interview any employees they suspect witnessed or were victim to prohibited trafficking activities. Further, the rule requires contractors to develop compliance plans for non-commercial-item contracts over $500,000 performed outside the United States. Finally, if enacted, the rule would require contracting officers to include in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System any human trafficking integrity violations substantiated by an inspector general report. Written comments on the proposed rule should be submitted on or before November 25, 2013. (78 Fed. Reg. 59317, 9/26/2013.)
