<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">This bulletin informs resident engineers of new policy and procedures for administering Buy America specifications on all Caltrans construction projects. Congress amended existing law to broaden
 the applicability of Buy America. The change in policy is a result of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21<sup>st</sup> Century Act (MAP-21).<br>
