In March, Government Contractors will face new Executive Order on Trafficking

Eliminating Human Trafficking from Government Contracting
On September 25, 2012, President Obama signed his landmark executive order aiming to eradicate trafficking from all federal contracts and subcontracts. By this March, the Federal Acquisition Regulation will be amended, requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to be able to report that their supply chains have a clean bill of anti-trafficking health (note that “trafficking” is defined broadly to include coerced labor, indentured servitude, etc.; no movement of the person is required). These new regulations will also require self-reporting and full cooperation with investigators.
