The US Federal Government executes various multilateral and bilateral international trade agreements and other trade initiatives via the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), the core statute. The TAA applies to all GSA Scheduled contracts. The TAA Compliance limits the country of origin for products sold through your contract schedule
This implies the items subject to the following may only be sold:
Items which are wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of the U.S. or a designated country
Items that are “substantially transformed” in the U.S. or a designated country into a new and different article of commerce with a name, character, or use distinct from that of the article or articles from which it was transformed.
It is incumbent upon each Schedule Vendor/Contractor that their product information is accurately incorporated into the contract and displayed on GSA Advantage!®. Ensure periodic reviews so that the correct Country of Origin (COO) is displayed as manufacturers sometimes change their manufacturing points.
