The Departments of Homeland Security and State led the effort to develop government-wide awareness training on human trafficking specific to the acquisition workforce. This training is specifically tailored for the U.S. Government acquisition workforce on combating human trafficking using the pertinent provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR)
. The FAR provides remedies for the acquisition workforce to use against contractors who engage in human trafficking, including debarment. This class provides one continuous learning point and is free to all civilian agency employees and is available through the following links:
- Defense Acquisition University continuous learning portal (requires username), Course number FAC 022
- FAI Training Application System (FAITAS)
In the next few weeks, DoD will release its own Contracting and Acquisition training.
