The purpose of the ARRA is to stimulate economic recovery in part by funding current infrastructure construction, not to delay projects that are ‘‘shovel ready’’ by requiring utilities, such as the Town, to revise their standards and specifications, institute a new bidding process, and potentially choose a more costly, less efficient project. The imposition of ARRA Buy American requirements on such projects otherwise eligible for State Revolving Fund assistance would result in unreasonable delay and thus displace the ‘‘shovel ready’’ status for this project. To further delay construction is in direct conflict with a fundamental economic purpose of the ARRA, which is to create or retain jobs. The OIA has reviewed this waiver request and to the best of our knowledge at the time of review has determined that the supporting documentation provided by the Town is sufficient to meet the criteria listed under Section 1605(b) and in the April 28, 2009, ‘‘Implementation of Buy American provisions of Public Law 111–5, the ‘American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’ Memorandum:’’ Iron, steel, and the manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality. The basis for this project waiver is the authorization provided in Section 1605(b)(2). Due to the lack of production of this product in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality in order to meet the Town’s technical specifications, a waiver from the Buy American requirement is justified. The March 31, 2009 Delegation of Authority Memorandum provided Regional Administrators with the authority to issue exceptions to Section 1605 of ARRA within the geographic boundaries of their respective regions and with respect to requests by individual grant recipients. Having established both a proper basis to specify the particular good required for this project, and that this manufactured good was not available from a producer in the United States, the Town of Smyrna is hereby granted a waiver from the Buy American requirements of Section 1605(a) of Public Law 111–5 for VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:45 Dec 30, 2010 Jkt 223001 the purchase of GreensandPlus filter media using ARRA funds as specified in the Town of Smyrna’s request of October 1, 2010. This supplementary information constitutes the detailed written justification required by Section 1605(c) for waivers ‘‘based on a finding under subsection (b).’’ Authority: Pub.
