Comment on the Senior Policy Operating Group to Combat Trafficking in Persons Draft Definition for "Recruitment Fees”
At the request of the Senior Policy Operating Group (SPOG) for Combating Trafficking In Persons, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council is considering a new definition for the term “recruitment fees” to supplement the new anti-trafficking regulations (FAR Case 2013-001) published on January 29, 2015, to implement E.O. 13627 and the End Trafficking In Government Act. The definition would apply to FAR subparts 22.17 (Combating Trafficking in Persons) and FAR subpart 52.222-50 (Combating Trafficking in Persons).
Early public input is welcome on the draft definition. Feedback will facilitate the Council’s development of a proposed rule, but will not supplant the rulemaking process.
To see copies of any early inputs received, please click here.
We estimate that this early engagement opportunity for public input on the new definition of “Recruitment Fees” will close in early March 2015.
