Description:
Modern supply chains are increasingly global and complex. Layer in the unique domestic sourcing preferences and mandates imposed under the Buy American Act (BAA) and its companion statute, the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), and it is no wonder that prime contractors and subcontractors can quickly become overwhelmed by the supply chain management obligations arising under federal contracts. This session will provide an overview of these two statutes and their FAR implementations, discuss recent policy and litigation developments involving issues relating to domestic-sourcing rules, and explore practical approaches to negotiating and complying with these requirements throughout the supply chain.
