Subject: Build America, Buy America (BABA) Requirements


Dear Industry Partners:


As part of the IIJA, signed into Public Law 117-58 on November 15, 2021, the Build America, Buy America (BABA) Act was expanded beyond what was previously required only for steel/iron products, to now include a list of construction materials also required to be manufactured in the United States.  Henceforth and commencing with the January 20, 2023 letting, all federal-aid contracts will be subject to the new BABA requirements as written in the “Source of Supply and Quality Requirements (BDE)” special provision, of which is attached for your information and use.


To help facilitate these new requirements, a “List of Construction Materials Subject to Build America, Buy America (BABA)” has been created (for information only), and is now available on the Department’s website at the following location: .  The list is subject to change as more information becomes available from the USDOT/FHWA, so please check back periodically for updates.


We thank you for your help in disseminating this information to your members and affiliates. 


Lora S. Rensing, P.E., Bureau Chief of Construction
