Under the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), GSA Schedule contractors are required to provide items that are “wholly produced or manufactured” in the United States or a Designated Country, or that were “substantially transformed” into a new and different article of commerce in the United States or a Designated Country. Unfortunately, a Reseller does not control the manufacturing process and can be misled by ambiguous origin representations. The “substantially transformed” analysis is getting more difficult, and contractors can be liable if a product sold is not compliant with the TAA. This webinar will help explain the TAA, identify common issues, and offer best practices for compliance. We’ll discuss:

  • What is the US Trade Agreements Act (TAA) and why is it important?
  • What is a TAA Designated Country and what is not?
  • Differences between the TAA and the BAA (Buy American Act)
  • Determining Country of Origin (COO) and “substantial transformation”
  • Who has authority? U.S. Customs & Border Protection and CROSS Rulings
  • Inventory Self-Audits and Manufacturer updates
  • GSA Schedule Letter of Supply, the Price Proposal Template, and your Supplier Agreements
  • TAA compliance for Services? Yes!
  • The risks of non-compliance and the False Claims Act

Recommended attendees for this webinar include contract managers, product managers, supplier and channel managers, general counsel and legal representatives, and government sales managers.
