Preference for domestically produced steel in government procurement in Louisiana, US.
in United States
Trade barrier summary
This affects exporters of steel UK to Louisiana, United States. Government procurement of steel must prioritise steel rolled in the State of Louisiana. This is providing it is equal in quality, the cost does not exceed by more than 10% of the cost of steel rolled outside Louisiana, and enough steel rolled in Louisiana is available.
In state contracts awarded by competitive sealed bidding, preference is given to resident businesses in a tie bid if there is no sacrifice or loss of quality. This puts UK exporters of steel at a disadvantage when bidding for contracts.
