Notice of Proposed Buy America Waiver for Waterjets
Notice of proposed Buy America waiver and request for comment.
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) received a request for a waiver to permit the purchase of new waterjets that are non- compliant with Buy America requirements using FTA funding. The request is from the Golden Gate Bridge Highway & Transportation District (Golden Gate Bridge) for its M.V. Mendocini ferry vessel. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(3)(A), FTA is providing notice of the waiver request and seeks public comment before deciding whether to grant the request. If granted, the waiver only would apply to a one-time FTA- funded procurement by Golden Gate Bridge.
