What is the BABA Act?

The Build America, Buy America (BABA) Act was enacted as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 to emphasize the use of American-made products in infrastructure projects funded by Federal financial assistance.

The BABA Act prioritizes three specific categories of products: iron or steel products, construction products, and manufactured products, including LED lighting projects.

To comply with the BABA Act, products must be manufactured in the United States, with the cost of domestic components exceeding 55 percent of the total component cost. This stipulation is known as the Buy America Requirement.

BAA vs BABA

While both the BAA and BABA aim to promote the use of American-made products, they do so within different contexts and with slightly different requirements and scopes.

KEY DIFFERENCES BAA BABA
Scope and Focus Primarily targets infrastructure projects, when the federal government is buying for its own use (ie: the Army purchasing material for building renovation). Applies to all federal procurements, not just infrastructure, where the federal government is providing financial assistance (ie: the government providing funding for a school renovation).
Product Coverage Focuses on iron, steel, manufactured products, and construction materials. 65% of total cost of components must be from the US, with a COTS ("Commercially Available Off-the-Shelf") exception available. Covers a broader range of goods and materials used in government contracts. 55% of total cost of components must be from the US, with no COTS exceptions.
Legislation Context Enacted during the Great Depression to protect American jobs and industries. Enacted in 2021 as part of a major infrastructure investment initiative.
Exemptions and Waivers Both acts allow for certain exemptions, but the specific conditions and processes for obtaining these waivers may differ.
