Public procurement localisation

The U.S. Department of Transportation made a grant of $10 million in Fiscal Year 2013 under the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program in order to improve the Apponaug Circulator in the City of Warwick, Rhode Island. The TIGER program was originally established under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA, Public Law 111-5). Grants under this program are subject to Buy America rules, including those set by section 1605 of the ARRA.

The HS codes monitored by the OECD Steel Committee are used to approximate the iron and steel products procured for this project.
