    12. Buy American clause Products sold into Federally funded jobs need to be made in the US unless the following is true; Reasonable commercial quantities of satisfactory quality alternative domestic products are not readily available. The cost of a domestic alternative increases the cost of the entire project by more than 25%. The selection of a non-domestic alternative is in the best interest of the public good. The total project cost exceeds $7,433,000, in which case products manufactured in countries with existing trade agreements may be used. The products are components of a larger product or assembly that is manufactured in the US. In this case, only the final assembly must meet the domestic manufacturing requirement. Honeywell actions to maximize customer opportunities; Compile a product listing of all product families and their country of origin. Identify those product families that do not have a competitive domestic alternative Agree on a statement of guidance to be communicated to the field that includes the above product list or a reference link to that list. A proactive approach to addressing these constraints will help customers feel enabled to bid on these ARRA jobs and not walk away from these jobs because they dont fully understand the rules.
