If a small business sells products of any kind to the government–including construction materials–it is essential to understand and comply with the Buy American Act, a comprehensive domestic preference statute. Contractors selling certain products to the Department of Defense must also comply with the Berry Amendment, which applies even more stringent preferences in favor of domestic products.
In this course, government contracts attorney Steven Koprince will cover the essentials of the Buy American Act and Berry Amendment, including when these statutes apply, how to evaluate potential exceptions, penalties for non-compliance, and much more.
