federal requirements in the use of arra funds
Federal Requirements in the use of ARRA Funds
  • Buy American
    • Department of Commerce
  • Davis Bacon
    • Department of Labor
buy american
Buy American

Must comply with U.S. obligations under international agreements, including the Free Trade Agreements (e.g. NAFTA) and the World Trade Orginaization Government Procurement Agreement (WTO GPA). These require the U.S. to waive Buy American restrictions and to treat products from those countries as if they were domestic.

This waiver applies when the prime contract has an estimated value of $7,443,000 or more. For subcontractors, the agreement with the prime contractor should include a FAR clause identifying whether the Buy American restriction is waived due to an international agreement.

Federal contractors can purchase iron, steel, and manufactured goods from countries with which we have a Trade Agreement (e.g., Canada, Mexico, Australia) or countries that are members of the WTO GPA (e.g., European Union members, Japan, and South Korea).

There are no agreements with Brazil, China, or India

Davis Bacon
  • Workers must be paid not less than the regionally adjusted prevailing wages for particular work performed.
  • Workers must be paid not less than one and one-half times their basic rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a work week.
  • Because these are required, the enforcement involves local action at the RFP and contract stages of construction and also requires that evidence of compliance is reported.
  • Contract payments can be withheld to ensure workers receive wages and overtime pay due, and liquidated damages may apply if overtime pay requirements are not met. Davis-Bacon contract clauses allow contract termination and debarment of contractors from future federal contracts for up to three years. A contractor who falsifies certified payroll records or induces wage kickbacks may be subject to civil or criminal prosecution, fines and/or imprisonment.
