Defense Base Act (DBA) was established in 1941 to provide coverage for workers on military bases outside of the United States. This act was later amended to provide commercial contractors working with the federal government for non-military projects (dams, educational facilities, roads, and ports). The extra amendment added national security. Most overseas contracts who work with federal agencies of the United States government, regardless of the military involved, will likely be required to have DBA coverage.
The U.S. Government requires employees hired by contractors and subcontractors to work on international government contracts to be protected by Defense Base Act insurance, regardless of their assignment and/or location. Discuss coverage details with The Insurance Exchange today
