  • The violation reporting process, and
  • A summary of the U.S. Government’s policy prohibiting trafficking related activities as contained in the provisions of FAR 222-50(b), Combating Trafficking in Persons.

Employees are trained both prior to departing from their origin countries and again upon arriving in the country where the work will be performed.
