Two domestic preference statutes dominate federal government contracting: the Buy American Act and the Trade Agreements Act. These statutes, and the FAR’s implementing provisions, dictate how contractors can source the goods (and sometimes services) they furnish to the federal government. In this webinar, the government contracts attorney John Mattox (Schoonover & Moriarty LLC) will cover both statutes through a regulatory overview, explanations of key concepts, and examples to drive understanding.

In this presentation, you will learn:

  • to which procurements the Buy American Act and Trade Agreements Act apply;
  • the requirements of the Buy American Act, including recently updated ones;
  • how the government evaluates proposals when the Buy American Act applies;
  • the requirements of the Trade Agreements Act and the concept of substantial transformation.

Target Audience: Companies pursuing federal contracting opportunities

Speaker(s): John Mattox, Schoonover & Moriarty LLC
