Additional Information on Eligibility:
Any commercial, international, educational, or non-profit organization(s), including any faith-based, community-based, or public international organization(s), capable of successfully reducing children’s participation in child labor, and developing and implementing educational and livelihoods programs to serve them is eligible to apply. Organizations applying for this award must demonstrate a proven ability to manage complex projects in developing countries through actions that support these aims. Lack of past experience with USDOL cooperative agreements, grants, or contracts does not bar eligibility or selection under this solicitation.
Applicants and any proposed subgrantees or subcontractors must comply with all audit requirements, including those established in OMB Circular A-133. Applicants must also demonstrate presence in Burkina Faso — either independently or through a relationship with another organization with country presence (i.e., a subgrantee or subcontractor) — enabling them to initiate program activities upon award of the cooperative agreement (see Section IV. Application and Submission Information).
The following Applicants (including subgrantees/subcontractors) will not be considered:
• Foreign governments and entities that are agencies of, or operated by or for, a foreign state or government.
• Organizations designated by the U.S. Government to be associated with terrorism or that have been debarred or suspended.
• Applicants charging a fee (profit) associated with a project funded by USDOL under this award.
In FY 2012, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (USDOL) Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) will award up to $5 million for one or more cooperative agreements to fund a technical assistance project(s) to support efforts to reduce child labor in geographic areas of Burkina Faso cotton farming and informal artisanal gold mining. The project will support efforts to work with government at the local, regional, and national level to improve methods for reducing child labor in both sectors. The project will support the direct delivery of services to children engaged in child labor or at risk of child labor and their households in communities dependent on cotton or gold production.
