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 exploitative child labor and developing and implementing educational and livelihoods programs to serve them is eligible to apply provided that they meet the requirements outlined below, which apply to all Applicants and any proposed subgrantees or subcontractors. Applications from foreign governments and entities that are agencies of, or operated by or for, a foreign state or government will not be considered. Applications from organizations designated by the U.S. Government to be associated with terrorism or that have been debarred or suspended will not be considered. Applicants are not allowed to charge a fee (profit) associated with a project funded by USDOL under this award. Lack of past experience with USDOL cooperative agreements, grants, or contracts does not bar eligibility or selection under this solicitation. Applicants must be in compliance with all audit requirements, including those established in OMB Circular A-133. Applications from U.S.-based non-profit organizations that are subject to the Single Audit Act, that fail to include their most recent single audit or fail to demonstrate that they have complied with single audit submission timeframes established in OMB Circular A-133 will be considered non-responsive and will be rejected. For Applicants that are foreign-based or for-profit organizations, failure to submit the most current independent financial audit will result in an application being considered non-responsive and rejected. In addition, the submission of any audit report that reflects adverse opinions will result in the application being considered non-responsive and rejected. Applicants must demonstrate presence in the Philippines � 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. In the event of award, within 60 days, the Grantee must provide either a written subgrant or subcontract agreement with such entity, acceptable to USDOL, or an explanation as to why that entity will not be participating in the cooperative agreement. USDOL reserves the right to re-evaluate the award of the cooperative agreement in light of any such change in an entity�s status and may terminate the award if deemed appropriate. The GoP must formally recognize the Applicant using the appropriate mechanism (e.g., Memorandum of Understanding, local registration of the organization) within 60 days of the signing of the cooperative agreement.
