U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulation

The United States has long had a policy prohibiting government employees and contractor personnel from engaging in trafficking in persons. The efficacy of this policy was strengthened in 2015 when the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 22.17 entitled “Combating Trafficking in Persons” implemented trafficking-related prohibitions for federal contractors and subcontractors. Additionally, FAR 22.15 outlines the “Prohibition of Acquisition of Products Produced by Forced or Indentured Child Labor” when issuing a solicitation for supplies.

Here, U.S. government procurement officials as well as Federal contractors and offerors, will find the laws, regulations, and resources to assist in compliance.
