Every product in this section complies with SPPA, which requires at least 75% of the total cost of materials to be mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States. All of these products meet the provisions of ARRA Subpart 25.6, Section 1605, 25.601 (2) “A construction material manufactured in the United States.”

Please note that “Buy American Act (BAA)” must be specified on any purchase order to ensure compliance.
The products in this section qualify as a WTO GPA or ‘Favored Nation’ country. On projects less than $2,000 and more than $7.8 million, these products are equal to domestically produced products.
These products can also be used anytime the contracting officer or Government Agency agrees to be bound by the trade agreements or uses the “public interest” exception for expedited projects.
Some Door Closers are also made in China, however 25.603 provides for the contracting officer to incorporate foreign construction materials without regard to the restrictions of section 1605 of the Recovery Act or the Buy American Act when one of the following exceptions applies:
It may be determined that a particular construction material is not mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available commercial quantities of a satisfactory quality.
2. Unreasonable cost
The contracting officer concludes that a cost of domestic construction material is unreasonable by using an evaluation factor of 6 percent applied to the cost of foreign unmanufactured construction material.
3. Inconsistent with public interest
The head of the agency may determine that application of the restrictions of 1605 of the Recovery Act to a particular construction material would be inconsistent with the public interest.
