What's Covered Under BABA?

The Build America, Buy America Act offers federal funding for projects built with a preference for domestic products. Items can only qualify for one of the following categories.

Iron & Steel Products

Under BABA, this refers to articles, materials or supplies that consist wholly or predominantly of iron and/or steel.

Manufactured Products

Under BABA, this category does not include iron or steel products, construction materials or Section 70917(c) materials. It does include other articles, materials or supplies that have been (i) processed into a specific form and shape, or (ii) combined with other articles, materials or supplies to create a product with different properties than the individual articles, materials or supplies.

Construction Materials

Under BABA, this refers to non-ferrous metals, plastic and polymer-based products, glass, fiber optic cable, optical fiber, lumber, engineered wood and drywall. Minor additions of articles, materials, supplies or binding agents do not change categorization of the construction materials.
