The objectives of NCHRP Project 20-65(8A) were to (a) describe current Buy America requirements and new Buy America provisions resulting from the passage of SAFETEA-LU as they relate primarily to the procurement of paratransit vehicles by state DOT's and their federal funding subrecipients, (b) identify common issues faced by state DOT's and their funding subrecipients as a result of meeting current Buy America provisions as well as expected issues resulting from proposed changes resulting from SAFETEA-LU for the procurement of vans and body-on-chassis buses, and (c) develop recommendations for dealing with the issues identified for presentation to FTA by state DOT's and their funding subrecipients. This task has been completed. The final report has been published as NCHRP Research Results Digest 319.
