    Can anyone explain the relationship between the WTO’s Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) and the Buy American Act (1933)?

    It appears that the Buy American Act was not covered under the GPA, but some provisions of Buy American can be in direct conflict with GPA…can anyone clarify this for me?

    I am interested in examining this at the state and local level as only 37 states in the U.S. are covered under Annex II of the GPA. So what does this mean for the rest of the states that are not covered under GPA or the agencies in those 37 states that are not covered?

    Any answers would be appreciated.
