The U.S. have proposed changes to their federal government procurement regulations to strengthen Buy American purchasing preferences. It is not expected that this will significantly impact UK businesses bidding for U.S. federal government contracts. UK businesses continue to have access to a waiver from Buy American preferences that the U.S. applies for end-products from designated countries (including the UK) covered by the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA). However, if you have concerns, we encourage you to contact the Department for International Trade (DIT) and recommend that you comment on the U.S. public consultation, open until September 28th.
