When the Government Must “Buy American”: Understanding the Buy American Act, the Trade Agreements Act, and Related Policy Developments Webinar

Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Scott Freling and Mike Wagner are presenting the webinar, "When the Government Must “Buy American”: Understanding the Buy American Act, the Trade Agreements Act, and Related Policy Developments" on June 18, 2019.

This course will help participants:

  • Understand the statutory and regulatory requirements arising from the Buy American Act (BAA) and the Trade Agreements Act (TAA) that apply to a Federal Government procurement
  • Recognize nuances in the BAA and TAA (e.g., components versus sub-components; end products versus construction materials; manufacturing versus substantial transformation; civilian agency requirements versus Department of Defense requirements)
  • Learn how to apply the BAA’s two-part test (i.e., determining where the item is manufactured, and calculating the cost of components)
  • Learn how the BAA and TAA requirements are implemented and incorporated into a contract, and determine what requirements must or should be flowed down to subcontractors
  • Understand the implications of compliance failures, including False Claims Act violations, bid protest risk, suspension and debarment actions, and breach of contract
  • Identify other domestic sourcing regimes, like the Berry Amendment and the restrictions on specialty metals
