Public procurement localisation

On March 26, 2013, the President signed into law the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (H.R. 933). The bill includes two provisions that restrict foreign access to public procurement tenders in the United States.

Section 506 of the Act "[r]enders any person who mislabels a product sold in or shipped to the United States as "Made in America" ineligible to receive any contract or subcontract funded by this Act." Furthermore, the provision in the same section "requires funds made available by this Act to be used for the purchase of items that are manufactured, produced, or assembled in the United States." This section of the appropriations bill concerns the Departments of Commerce, Justice, Science, and related agencies.

This section of the appropriations bill concerns the Departments of Commerce, Justice, Science, and related agencies.

The second (and discriminatory) part of the provision above was scrapped in the appropriations bill for the Fiscal Year 2014 (sec. 506 of H.R.3547; cf. Sources). Hence, this intervention is no longer classified as implemented.
