Subject to the availability of funds, USDOL’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) intends to award, through a competitive process, one

The project will achieve the following outcomes:
1) Strengthened capacity of private sector partner(s) in the Colombian and Ecuadorian palm oil sectors to implement a robust social compliance system; and 2) Increased understanding, at regional and global levels, of promising practices in social compliance systems in palm oil supply chains.
For Outcome 1, applicants must implement the project in Colombia and Ecuador.
For Outcome 2, applicants must implement the project in Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru.
