As part of its ongoing implementation of the Build America, Buy America Act (BABA), HUD has published a new request for information (RFI). The RFI consists of five key questions that will help HUD and its federal partners implement the Build America, Buy America Act. Any requests any data or evidence you can provide that would help estimate the cost of BABA in terms of price and timing of project. The five groups of questions are summarized as follows:

  1. Domestic Materials Sourcing and Manufacturing – Whether product categories are produced in the us, who manufactures materials, and the production capacity questions,
  2. Market Readiness – Your expectations about demand for specific products,
  3. Timing – including supply chain concerns and length of time to deliver materials,
  4. Other Practical Considerations – Other specific points about complying with the law, and
  5. BAP Compliance and Impact – Specific recommendations that would allow for effective implementation.

The topics listed above include specific questions. Responses can address specific materials covered by BABA or general data that would inform HUD’s implementation. The RFI emphasizes that responses should be as specific as possible and include specific data wherever possible.
