(1) Under the Trade Agreements Act (19 U.S.C. 2512), you only purchase finished products from the United States or a particular country or country, unless the offers for these finished products or services are insufficient or insufficient to meet the requirements. This purchase restriction does not apply below the WTO GPA threshold for supplies and services, even if the acquisition is covered by a free trade agreement. (3) If, over a 12-month period, recurring or multiple premiums are expected for the same type of product or product, use the estimated total value of these forecast premiums to determine whether the WTO free trade agreement is applicable. Do not divide an acquisition with the intention of reducing the estimated value of the acquisition below the WTO GPA dollar threshold or a free trade agreement. As has already been said, there is a threshold for the minimum value of the dollar for the AAA. This threshold varies depending on whether it is a supply contract or a construction contract and the trade agreement in which the foreigner participates. For example, the WTO GPA and individual free trade agreements (free trade agreements) often apply different thresholds (see Chart 2, p. 6, for the most current thresholds). “Publication of Proposed Regulations,” 41 U.S.C 1707, is the law applicable to the publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Paragraph 1 of the Statute stipulates that a contracting policy, regulation, procedure or form (including an amendment or amendment) must be published for public notice when it relates to the use of the affected funds and has a significant impact on the Agency`s internal operating procedures, which issues the policy, regulation, procedure or form. , or has significant costs or administrative consequences for contractors or suppliers.

This final rule does not need to be published for public notice, as it only adapts thresholds according to pre-defined formulas to adapt to changes in economic conditions, which maintains the status quo without having a significant impact, beyond the government`s internal working procedures.
