    Can we purchase aluminum plates that were milled in the US from foreign (Russian) aluminum?


    Answer

    I recommend evaluating offers consistent with DFARS Subpart 225.5 - Evaluating Foreign Offers - Supply Contracts.  The acquisition is subject to the Buy American Act and products from Russia are neither a qualifying country or designated country end product.  Given the information above when  applying the 50 percent evaluation factor to the low foreign offer, should result in awarding to the domestic offer.
