Strengthening Worker Organizations in Georgia: USDOL/ILAB intends to award up to $750,000 for one cooperative agreement to fund a technical assistance project in Georgia. The purpose for funding this project is to build the capacity of worker organizations to improve respect for workers’ rights. The duration of the project funded by this announcement is up to 4 years from the effective date of award. The project start date will be negotiated upon award of the individual cooperative agreement but will be no later than December 31, 2014. ILAB’s mission is to use all available international channels to improve working conditions, raise living standards, protect workers’ ability to exercise their rights, and address the workplace exploitation of children and other vulnerable populations. ILAB is authorized to award and administer cooperative agreements by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, Pub. Law 113-76. Cooperative agreements awarded under this solicitation will be administered by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and technically managed by ILAB’s Office of Trade and Labor Affairs (OTLA). The mission of OTLA is to implement trade-related labor policy and coordinate international technical cooperation in support of the labor provisions in free trade agreements; to develop and implement the Department of Labor's policy positions on international economic and trade issues; and to fund and oversee technical assistance projects addressing worker rights issues in key trading partner countries.

Organizations applying for this award must demonstrate a proven ability to manage complex projects in developing countries. This FOA is for the award of a new cooperative agreement with the specific project objectives and outcomes outlined in this SGA. As such, applicants may not submit applications to renew or supplement an already-existing USDOL-funded project.

However, USDOL requires that PIOs and all other entities that elect to apply for this cooperative agreement opportunity adhere to the specific requirements outlined in this FOA concerning monitoring and evaluation, audits and counter-terrorism. In negotiating an award with a PIO, USDOL will discuss the inclusion of appropriate language acknowledging the rights and privileges as currently established and afforded to PIOs by the U.S. Government in accordance with U.S. law.

Applicants and any proposed subgrantees and/or subcontractors must comply with all audit requirements under the Single Audit Act apply under the OMB implementation in effect at the time of award. Applicants must also demonstrate in-country presence and ability to begin implementation of the project in Georgia upon award. Applicants may demonstrate this either independently or through a relationship with another organization with country presence that will be directly involved in project implementation— so that program activities can be initiated upon award of the cooperative agreement (see Section IV.

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.
