USDOT unveils new 'Buy America' webpage


Today, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood unveiled a new U.S. Department of Transportation ‘Buy America’ webpage that provides information about the federal requirements for transportation infrastructure projects that must be built with American-made products.

The new webpage,, consolidates access to the Buy America provisions across all DOT agencies. While there are similarities, the DOT’s operating administrations have different Buy America statutory provisions, according to a press release.

The new site provides access to each agency’s Buy America provisions, requirements and waiver processes. Companies can subscribe to receive alerts when new information on Buy America for DOT-funded infrastructure projects is posted.
