Description

TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Legal Research Digest 49: Updated Guide to Buy America Requirements—2015 Supplement examines various statutory and regulatory Buy America requirements that a state or local governmental entity must examine when receiving funds for a public transportation project from one or more USDOT agencies. The purpose of this Legal Research Digest is to update the earlier TRB legal research to provide a comprehensive and current summary of the FTA Buy America provision.

TRB first published its Guide to Federal Buy America Requirements in 2001 as TCRP Legal Research Digest 17. A 2009 supplement to the guide was published as TCRP Legal Research Digest 31, which addressed significant legislative changes to the FTA Buy America provision enacted by Congress in 2005, as well as FTA’s 2007 final rule implementing those changes. In 2015, the FTA Buy America provision was addressed again in National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Legal Research Digest 1, along with other federal transportation grant Buy America provisions that are applicable to federally funded rail projects.
