President Trump on Tuesday is expected to sign an executive order directing all federal agencies to buy domestic products and those that do not will be held accountable, Government Executive reports.
According to the report, current regulations ask agencies to buy only domestic products but many agencies circumvent the requirement through waivers and the president intends on ending that loophole.
As part of the order, each agency will undergo a “Buy American” performance review and their practice of requesting waivers and exceptions will also be under scrutiny, the report notes.
