Department of Labor

Agency Overview

Through its technical cooperation programming, the Department of Labor's (DOL) Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) helps to combat the worst forms of child labor, including forced labor and human trafficking, and helps ensure that trade partners fulfill their labor-related trade commitments to level the playing field for U.S. workers so they are not forced to compete with child laborers and other vulnerable workers. It does this by working with governments and key stakeholders to improve institutional and systematic labor law enforcement, prohibit the use of child labor and forced labor, and support improved education and livelihoods for vulnerable populations.

ILAB implements technical cooperation projects under two broad programs.

ILAB’s Child Labor and Forced Labor program supports efforts to combat exploitative child labor and forced labor around the world. Technical cooperation projects range from targeted action programs in specific sectors of work to more comprehensive programs that support national efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor as defined by International Labour Organization (ILO) Convention 182.

ILAB’s Trade and Labor Affairs programming provides technical assistance that supports identified efforts by trade partner countries to enforce and comply with their labor-related trade commitments. Project goals include adopting or reforming labor laws or standards, improving labor inspectorates' enforcement processes and capacity, supporting U.S. businesses in mitigating labor-related risks in global supply chains, and improving adherence to occupational safety and health standards.

Transaction Data | DoL

Transaction data represents every individual financial record in an agency’s accounting system that has been processed in the given time period for program work with implementing partners and other administrative expenses. The data shown in the planned, obligated, and spent tabs represents the same financial data at a higher level of aggregation (by country and sector only), thus this data is called Aggregated data.

The transaction data shows the same financial data at a more granular level. Each data record - or financial transaction - contains qualitative data fields, including descriptive titles, vendor names, and location, along with the financial data. Thus, the transaction data is called Disaggregated data.

This data set will continue to be updated in accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Bulletin 12-01.
