DOD/DARC RIN: 0750-AH41 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: ●Administering Trafficking in Persons Regulations (DFARS Case 2011-D051)  
Abstract: This final rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Supplement (DFARS)to add to the list of contract administration functions a requirement to maintain surveillance over contractor compliance with trafficking in persons duties and responsibilities when they are incorporated in contracts. While the clause at FAR 52.222-50, Trafficking in Persons, has been in effect since February 2009, the listing of Government contract administration functions was not modified at that time to add surveillance of a contractor's compliance with the clause requirements. Because the addition of this contract administration function is internal to DoD and will not impact current contract requirements or contract clauses required, this is not a significant revision as defined at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 1.501-1. Therefore, under the authority at FAR 1.501-3(a), this can be published as a final rule without first obtaining public comment. The rule adds a contract administration function that is entirely internal to the Government and will not impact contractors.
