Department of Defense Report to Congress on Purchases of Supplies Manufactured Outside the United States in FY 2010   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Section 8306 of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act for FY 2007 (Public Law 110-028), modified the Buy American Act (41 U.S.C. lOa) by adding a requirement for the head of each Federal agency to submit a report to Congress on the amount of acquisitions made by the agency from entities that manufacture the articles, materials, or supplies outside of the United States in each of the fiscal years 2007 through 2011. The report is to: (l) identify the dollar value of any articles, materials, or supplies purchased that were manufactured outside the United States; (2) provide an itemized list of all waivers granted with respect to such articles, materials or supplies under the Buy American Act (BAA); (3) identify the specific exception under this section that was used to purchase such articles, materials, or supplies; and (4) provide a summary of the total procurement funds spent on goods manufactured in the United States versus funds spent on goods manufactured outside the United States. […] This report includes three sections: (1) all procurements from foreign entities and more specifically, purchases of articles, materials, or supplies/manufactured goods from such foreign entities; (2) waivers granted with respect to such articles, materials or supplies under the BAA; and (3) a comparison of procurement funds spent on goods manufactured in the United States versus funds spent on goods manufactured outside the United States."
