Department of Homeland Security Buy-American Provision

The Department of Homeland Security Buy-American provision for domestically manufactured textiles and apparel was included in stimulus legislation signed into law by President Obama last week. While there are exceptions, these provisions will become effective on all DHS contracts 180 days after signing (around August of 2009). This essentially brings DHS on par with the Berry Amendment which restricts DoD purchases of textiles to American sources.
