FAR RIN: 9000-AO22 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: ●Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2021-008, Amendments to the FAR Buy American Act Requirements 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are considering amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement section 8 of Executive Order 14005, Ensuring the Future Is Made in All of America by All of America’s Workers. Section 8 requires the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council to consider amending the FAR to 1) replace the component test used to identify domestic end products and domestic construction materials with a test under which domestic content is measured by the value that is added to the product through U.S.-based production or U.S. job-supporting economic activity, 2) increase the threshold for the domestic content requirement, and 3) increase the price preferences for domestic end products and domestic construction materials. DoD, GSA, and NASA are seeking information that will assist in drafting a proposed rule that will meet the objectives of section 8.
