(a) The Buy American Act (41 U.S.C. 10a10d) generally requires that only domestic const

struction material be used in the performance of this contract. (See the clause entitled “Buy American" in Standard form 23A, General Provisions, Construction Contract.) This requirement does not apply to the following construction material or components: Acetylene black Asbestos, amosite Bismuth Cadmium, ores and flue dust Chrome ore or chromite Cork, wood or bark and waste Graphite, natural Mica Rubber, crude and latex Wax, carnauba Woods of the following species: angelique,

balsa, ekki, greenheart, lignum vitae, mahogany and teak

(b)(1) Furthermore, bids or proposals offering use of additional nondomestic construction material may be acceptable for award if the government determines that use of comparable domestic construction material is impracticable or would unreasonably increase the cost or that domestic construction material (in sufficient and reasonably available commercial quantities and of a satisfactory quality) is unavailable. Reliable evidence shall be furnished justifying such use of additional nondomestic construction material.

(2) Where it is alleged that use of domestic construction material would unreasonably increase the cost:

(i) Data shall be included, based on a reasonable canvass of suppliers, demonstrating that the cost of each such domestic construction material would exceed by more than 6 percent the cost of comparable non domestic construction material. (All costs of delivery to the construction site shall be in cluded, as well as any applicable duty).

(ii) For evaluation purposes, 6 percent of the cost of all additional, nondomestic construction material, which qualifies under paragraph (i), above, will be added to the bid or proposal.

(3) When offering additional nondomestic construction material bids or proposals may also offer, at stated prices, any available comparable domestic construction material so as to avoid the possibility that failure of a nondomestic construction material to be acceptable under (1), above, will cause rejection of the entire bid.

The property shall be fur. nished in the quantities shown, with the exception of items marked "as required" which will be furnished in whatever quantities are required to complete the work. All additional quantities of the items on this list and any other property required to complete the work will be furnished by the Contractor.

(b) Point of delivery. The Government shall deliver this property to the Contractor at the point(s) specified in the GFPL. The Contractor shall at no expense to the government inspect, unload, load and make fur. ther delivery of the property at the job site.
