Title 48Chapter 1Subchapter DPart 25Subpart 25.5 → §25.504-2

Title 48: Federal Acquisition Regulations System
Subpart 25.5—Evaluating Foreign Offers—Supply Contracts

25.504-2   WTO GPA/Caribbean Basin Trade Initiative/FTAs.

Example 1.

Offer A304,000U.S.-made end product (not domestic).
Offer B303,000U.S.-made end product (domestic), small business.
Offer C300,000Eligible product.
Offer D295,000Noneligible product (not U.S.-made).

Analysis: Eliminate Offer D because the acquisition is covered by the WTO GPA and there is an offer of a U.S.-made or an eligible product (see 25.502(b)(1)). If the agency gives the same consideration given eligible offers to offers of U.S.-made end products that are not domestic offers, it is unnecessary to determine if U.S.-made end products are domestic (large or small business). No further analysis is necessary. Award on the low remaining offer, Offer C (see 25.502(b)(2)).
