I am ordering HAZMAT books for the Naval Supply Systems Command that are manufactured in Canada. The books are distributed throughout the US by various American-owned companies. How does the Buy American Act affect this order?
Open full Question Details
The procurement of books from Canada is exempt from the restrictions of the Buy American Act and Balance of Payment Program as a qualifying country. See DFARS Subpart 225.5 – Evaluating Foreign Offers – Supply Contracts and DFARS Subpart 225.872 Contracting with qualifying country sources.
