Steel Products Procurement Act - Amended


The Department of General Services (DGS) has reviewed all comments and supporting documentation received prior to the end of the thirty-day (30) comment period and presents here its annual list of exempt machinery and equipment steel products.  The Amendment allows contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, bidders, offerors and public agencies to rely on the list of exempt steel products in preparing bids and contracts for any project that is subject to the Steel Products Procurement Act.

Pursuant to the Amendment and DGS’ Statement of Policy, DGS will not consider any changes to this list during the calendar year for which it was created.  In early 2015 DGS will update the 2014 Final List to add steel products waived on ST-4 forms approved by DGS during calendar year 2014.  This new list will be the 2015 Draft List, which will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin for a thirty-day (30) public comment period.  After the comment period expires, DGS will revise the draft as needed and publish the 2015 Final List in early 2015.
