Abstract:

Over the last few decades the United States has played an active role in the development of international trade agreements dealing with government procurement. The most notable agreements are contained in the World Trade Organization WTO Agreement on Government Procurement and the procurement chapter of the North American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA, but many other free trade agreements also include government procurement provisions. Each of these agreements has obligated the United States to perform under specific requirements. The first section of this report will detail the U.S. obligations under these international agreements.
