What is TAA?
TAA essentially provides that agencies of The United States Government may require only “U.S. made or designated country end products.”. “End products” are defined as “those articles, materials and supplies to be acquired from certain designated (foreign) countries with which the United States has negotiated a trade agreement where the procurement is valued in excess of a specified dollar threshold (see FAR 25.402). Under the current Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), products and construction materials derived from a Trade Agreement “designated country” must be manufactured or “substantially transformed” within that country (see FAR 25.4, 52.225-5, 52.225-11). “Non-designated countries” include several countries that are major suppliers of goods or services to the U.S. market such as: China, India, Malaysia, and Thailand.
