Buy America Certification
INDOT will be requiring documentation on all reimbursable utility agreements that have been executed after January 1, 2014 to meet the Buy America Statute. The documentation that will be required, are material certifications that will be sent by the utility to INDOT along with the invoices the utility submits. This requirement along with spot checks in the field by INDOT personnel, we anticipate will meet the Buy America requirements set forth by FHWA.
