When doing business with the United States government, as well as state or local governments using federal funds, there is usually a preference for U.S.-sourced supplies and construction materials. But this “preference” can change based on many factors – variables such as contract size, materials purchased, purchasing agency, and nature of the procurement itself. And making things even more complicated, Congress and the White House are constantly imposing new demands, making the last few years very complicated when navigating this “Buy American” maze. Knowing the differences between the various “Buy American” requirements is the difference between a compliant proposal and a potential fraud investigation based on a potentially false certification. Join David Gallacher as he explores this complicated space, untangling the differences between the various different domestic preferences regimes, including how many of these requirements are changing in real time.
