Trade Agreements Act & GSA
GSA Schedule Contracts are subject to the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), meaning all products listed on the GSA Schedule Contract must be manufactured or “substantially transformed” in the United States or a TAA “designated country”. The designated TAA compliant countries are composed of:
- World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement Countries;
- Free Trade Agreement Countries;
- Least Developed Countries; and
- Caribbean Basin Countries
The GSA Schedule Contract helps streamline the government sales process. In fiscal year 2021, government buyers purchased over $10 billion in products through the GSA Schedule. If your company is looking to get a GSA Schedule to sell TAA compliant products to the government, contact us to discuss how we can assist. Federal Schedules, Inc. has been helping companies obtain and manage their GSA Schedule Contracts since 1986.
TAA Designated Country List
Products are considered TAA compliant if they are manufactured or substantially transformed in the United States or any of the TAA designated countries listed in the chart below. The TAA designated country list is sourced from the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and is current as of September 2022.
Changes to the TAA designated country list are infrequent; the last update occurred in November 2016 with the addition of Moldova and Ukraine. To directly access this clause of the FAR, please click here: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.225-5, Trade Agreements.
