All U.S. government contractors and subcontractors working abroad are required to have Defence Base Act (DBA) workers’ compensation insurance to cover injury or illness to employees. 
 
The DBA applies to any employee, regardless of nationality, who:
⦁ Works for the private sector on U.S. military bases or overseas on lands or
in territories used by the U.S. for military purposes; or  
⦁ Works on public work contracts with any U.S. government agency,
including construction and service contracts in connection with national
defense or with war outside the U.S.; or  
⦁ Works on overseas contracts approved and funded by the U.S. under the
Foreign Assistance Act; or  
⦁ Works for American employers providing welfare or similar services
outside of the United States for the Armed Forces; or 
⦁ Is a subcontractor (Prime Contractor is responsible for ensuring that the
subcontractor has required DBA insurance).   
Most government agencies allow the cost of DBA to be included in your
contract proposal. This means you are able to provide coverage for your
employees and be compliant, without it affecting your costs.
