FAR RIN: 9000-AO22 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2021-008, Amendments to the FAR Buy American Act Requirements 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are 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 strengthen the impact of the Buy American Act. In pursuit of the goals of section 8, the final rule would provide for 1) an increase to the domestic content threshold, a schedule for future increases, and a fallback threshold that would allow for products meeting a specific lower domestic content threshold to qualify as domestic products under certain circumstances; and 2) a framework for application of an enhanced price preference for a domestic product that is considered a critical item or made up of critical components.
