We understand your need for a bus duct system in compliance with the recent ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) and the Buy American Act. We are your source for expertise and offer you certifications in compliance with each of these Acts, if required for your project. Furthermore, we are confident your organization will feel comfortable knowing our process backs up the required certifications and helps your company comply with these Federal Government requirements. Below,is a brief summary of each of these Acts.
The ARRA establishes requirements for federal government projects funded with stimulus dollars: “none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used for a project for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless all of the iron, steel, and manufacture goods used in the project are produced in the United States. However, there is no requirement with regard to the origin of the components or subcomponents in other manufactured construction material, as long as the manufacture of the construction material occurs in the United States.
The Buy American Act covers all purchases made by any U.S Federal Government agency for contracts above certain limits. This Act, not to be confused with the Buy America Act states, “only such manufactured articles, materials, and supplies as have been manufactured in the United States substantially all from articles, materials, or supplies mined, produced, or manufactured, as the case may be, in the United States, shall be acquired for public use.” The Buy American Act stipulates a majority of the component cost must be made in the U.S. and the manufacturing of the product must be in the U.S.
