This module informs Defense acquisition and contracting personnel about combating trafficking in persons in Department of Defense contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements.  This includes an overview of laws and regulations, and the responsibilities to prevent, identify, and respond to abuses. This module will help learners understand how to promote the U.S. Government's zero tolerance policy on TIP within the DoD contracting and acquisition community.

CTIP acquisition (includes contracting, grants, and cooperative agreements) training is designed for DoD personnel with job responsibilities that require daily contact with DoD contractors, grant and cooperative agreement recipients, or foreign national personnel.  The “daily contact” category includes contracting officers and contracting officer’s representatives, grant and agreements officers, and grant/agreements officer representatives (program administrators).  CTIP acquisition training is taken in lieu of the CTIP general awareness training and is required to be taken once every three years.

For more reference information regarding this requirement, please refer to this memo signed by the Undersecretaries of Defense for Personnel & Readiness and Acquisition, Technology, & Logistics.
