Distributor Best Practices/Resources
In spite of their similar names, the Buy America Act and Buy American Act are two completely different regulation requirements. Buy America applies solely to grants issued by the Federal Transit Administration and Federal Highway Administration; Buy American may be applied to all direct U.S. federal procurement. Each of these requirements has specific exclusions so be sure to read through them carefully as you are ultimately responsible for ensuring your company is in compliance with these agreements.
