Frequently Asked Questions

Overview of the NOS for Transportation Survey

Are Contributors paid to participate in a Working Group or other areas?


There is no remuneration for participating as a Contributor. The USDOT Combating Human Trafficking in Transportation Impact Award includes $50,000 funding, so UAS is presenting advantageous benefits for participation, given the financial limitations.




What is the deadline to be selected as a Contributor?


The Contributor selection process will continue on an as-needed basis; however, selections will occur on a first-come, first serve basis, so early confirmation is encouraged.




What benefits are provided to serve as a Contributor?


Some of those benefits include, but are not limited to, 1) collaborating with other experts and contributing your expertise in this historic transportation study to seek a positive impact for survivors of sex and labor trafficking and those who work on their behalf, 2) receiving a special Letter of Participation from United Against Slavery, 3) being recognized as a Contributor in the final report, which will be presented to the USDOT Secretary and the public-at-large, 4) having early access to NOS data, and 5) publishing on NOS data at a pre-determined date.




Who will be publicly acknowledged as an approved Contributor?


An entity, company, or individual that has been approved by the Principal Investigator or the Co-Principal Investigator to serve on the NOS for Transportation study. This can include Transportation Institutes, Working Group Chair/Co-Chair/Members, Students who receive prior-approval, Anti-trafficking Experts, and/or Researchers. Contributors can remain anonymous, if desired.




How much time is required to be a Contributor?


There are multiple opportunities to serve as a Contributor and the time commitment will vary upon each role. Serving as a Chair or Co-Chair of a Working may require 10-20 hours over the next year, whereas members of a Working Group may only serve up to 10 hours in the same time frame. For Contributors that are participating in the data analytics or authoring a segment of the final report, time will vary according to the time allocated to each project. Each Working Group will be granted an opportunity to submit a short brief for inclusion on the final report and all approved Contributors will be publicly acknowledged for their participation, if desired.
