Defense Base Act Insurance Solicitation Number: M-OAA-GRO-EGAS-10-0001

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on February 1, 2010

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing solicitation M-OAA-GRO-EGAS-10-0001 for Defense Base Insurance.  The purpose of this acquisition is to provide a source of Worker’s Compensation Insurance as required by the Defense Base Act (DBA). Under all USAID contracts involving any overseas performance, the contractor is required by law to provide overseas employees with insurance coverage pursuant to the Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (commonly called the “Defense Base Act” or DBA) (42 U.S.C. 1651 et seq.). DBA coverage applies to individuals employed under USAID contracts or subcontracts or subordinate contracts regardless of the duration of their assignment, and is over and above any State Worker’s Compensation insurance coverage.
