PGI 225.070 Reporting of acquisition of end products manufactured outside the United States.

(1) Definitions. “Manufactured end product” and “place of manufacture” are defined in the provision at FAR 52.225-18, Place of Manufacture.

(2) Use the Federal Procurement Data System data field “Place of Manufacture,” under the section on Product or Service Information, to enter data on the acquisition of end products manufactured outside the United States for contracts awarded and orders issued in fiscal year 2007 and subsequent fiscal years. Select the appropriate description in accordance with the following table:

Place of Manufacture

(3) Note that the first and second from the last options in the drop down box are to be used only for reporting of contracts awarded or orders issued prior to October 1, 2006.

(4) The other options in the drop down box apply only to contracts awarded and orders issued on or after October 1, 2006. If the solicitation for the contract contains the provision at FAR 52.225-18, Place of Manufacture (or the commercial item equivalent at FAR 52.212-3(j)), the contracting officer must review the successful offeror’s response to this provision to select the correct option.

(i) Enter “Mfg in U.S.” if the offeror has checked the box “In the United States.”

(ii) If the offeror has checked the box “Outside the United States,” enter one of the other options, depending on the predominant reason for acquiring end products manufactured outside the United States. These reasons correspond to the exceptions to the Buy American statute (FAR Subpart 25.1 and DFARS Subpart 225.1). Further explanation of these exceptions to the Buy American statute are available at the FAR and DFARS references provided in the long description for each option.

(5) For any contract awarded on or after October 1, 2006, when the solicitation did not include the provision at FAR 52.225-18, Place of Manufacture (or FAR 52.212-3(j)), and for any order placed on or after October 1, 2006, under a contract that did not include one of these provisions, the contracting officer shall use best judgment in estimating whether the acquisition is predominantly for manufactured end products and whether the end products were predominantly end products manufactured in the United States or outside the United States, using the place of performance or other information that may be available to the contracting officer to assist in forming this judgment.
