‘Buy America’ requirements effective Oct. 1 for new stimulus construction contracts


Effective October 1, 2010, contractors that enter into new construction contracts funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be required to use only “iron, steel and manufactured goods used as construction material” that are produced or manufactured in the United States. Federal contracting officers may waive the requirements when American-made materials are not available in sufficient quantity and quality, or in instances where materials are unreasonably expensive.

For more information, contact the American Subcontractors Association at (703) 684-3450, Ext. 1333, or GovernmentRelations@asa-hq.com.
