Does this project include Buy America Provisions?
“Does this project include Buy America provisions? Or is
it Buy American?” What’s the difference between the two? How will that
affect my pricing . . . and my bid? What influence do trade agreements have?
How does it affect project funding and the products that are funded? TSA
funding has always avoided this issue by not including BAA requirements but as
we move into an era where more and more of our projects are funded by the
transportation bill, FAA, or other government programs, we will all be subject
to compliance with the Buy American Act.
Please join us Thursday, March 17th, at the Embassy Suites DFW North Hotel in Grapevine TX. Attorneys Russell Jumper and Tim Fandrey with Gray Reed will walk us through the history and evolution of Buy America and Buy American as we explore what this legislation means and how it is interpreted, then Chris Norton (CEO/President – VTC) will moderate a question and answer session as we have a lively discussion about how it effects our projects, our businesses, and everyone in the room!
Plus, our monthly “Member Spotlight” will feature Mr. Helge Hornis, Regional Technical Director of Pepperl+Fuchs.
We’ll also get an update on federal spending programs from Mr. Dan Devine (Transnorm System) of our Government Relations Committee. We hope to see you all March 17th.
