Public procurement localisation

The U.S. Department of Transportation made a grant of $10,000,000 in Fiscal Year 2012 under the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program to fund the Southeast Connector Road Project (Des Moines) project in the state of Iowa. 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.
