Project Description

This project will provide the Mechanical Department guidance and oversight in purchasing, ensuring that Metra remains compliant with the provisions of the Federal Transit Administration's Buy America Provisions. Delays in project implementation and the need for non-Federal funding sources result from failure to comply with the Buy America provisions. Federal funding for capital projects typically includes Buy America regulations.
