Funder: Department of Labor
 
Under a sub-contract with WESTAT, ISIM conducted an independent in-depth evaluation of the Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking, International Child Labor Technical Cooperation Program as recommended in the most recent Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) review of the program by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. The goal of the program is to support international initiatives to combat child labor, forced labor, and human trafficking through education, public awareness, and other incentive programs. The mission also includes collecting accurate, high quality data on child labor. The evaluation focuses on the impact of the program on its direct beneficiaries as well as the sustainability of the program. It is also concerned with assessing the appropriateness of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) performance and cost-efficiency measures in meeting the program’s goals. Finally, it examines the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) role, in relation to the efforts of other government agencies in combating exploitative child labor practices.
