This Notice of Intent (NOI) is not a request for funding applications. Subject to the availability of funds, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB), intends to award, through a competitive and merit-based process, one or more cooperative agreements to organizations to implement a project(s) in Burma (Southeast Asia) that aims to promote BurmaÂ’s efforts to comply with international standards in reducing child labor through research, awareness raising, strengthening of institutional capacity and coordination, and the development and implementation of pilot programs to remove children from child labor and prevent others from engaging in such activities. The Office of Procurement Services (OPS) anticipates publishing the Solicitation for Cooperative Agreement Applications (SCA) on or about June 27, 2013 (this date is subject to change).

This NOI does not include an SCA or any attachments. It only constitutes a notice of USDOLÂ’s intent to publish an SCA at a later date. Interested applications are encouraged to monitor www.grants.gov for the SCA, as this is the method by which it will be made available to the public. No email or paper copies will be provided.
