Administration Expands Made In America Requirements

Federal procurements need to be 60 percent domestic. 

President Biden’s administration announced it will increase requirements for federally-procured goods to be sourced domestically, a step officials say will boost American manufacturing and supply chains. The update will require that 60 percent of federally procured content must be made in the United States, up from 55 percent under the Buy American Act. 

Livia Shmavonian, the director of the White House’s Made in America Office, said, “This increase in the domestic content threshold is a key part of the Administration’s strategic approach to leveraging federal purchasing power to invest in American industry and all of America’s workers. We’re sending a clear signal to the business community to drive new investments, to create good paying jobs, and to fill gaps in our supply chain—and it’s working.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they implement expanded requirements for the government to utilize items made in the U.S.
  • For Secretary Raimondo as she collaborates with the private sector regarding industry and manufacturing.
  • For Secretary Walsh to be discerning as he heads the Labor Department.
