Office of Management and Budget Releases Proposed Rule for the Build America, Buy America Act

Comments due March 13, 2023

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has continued implementing the Build America, Buy America Act (BABA) by releasing a proposed rule that clarifies and revises BABA requirements.

First, the proposed rule seeks input on definitions of materials covered by BABA—construction materials, manufactured goods, and iron and steel—as well as “suggestions for reducing burden for recipients” of Federal Financial Assistance.

Second, the notice provides text of Part 184, an addition to 2 CFR chapter I, “Office of Management and Budget Governmentwide Guidance for Grants and Agreements.”

Find the notice here and see the Feb. 28 edition of The NAHRO Monitor for further details.
