The FHWA's Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA's finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate in procurement of non-domestic Mobile Harbor Crane, 100 tons minimum capacity for the Virginia Ports Authority.
In accordance with Division A, section 122 of the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012” (Pub. L. 112-55), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for non-domestic Mobile Harbor Crane with 100 tons minimum capacity (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=100) on October 8th. The FHWA received no comments in response to the publication. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers of Mobile Harbor Crane with 100 tons minimum capacity. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of the Mobile Harbor Crane with 100 tons minimum capacity
In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244, 122 Stat. 1572), the FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of the finding. Comments may be submitted to the FHWA's Web site via the link provided to the Virginia waiver page noted above.Start Signature
