COMPLIANCE AND ENFORCEMENT OF THE BUY AMERICAN PROVISION & CHOOSE CALIFORNIA PRODUCE ACT
As specified in the Buy American provision in the National School Lunch Program (subdivision (n) of section 1760 of title 42 of the United States code), products of domestic origin are strongly preferred (processed products should be at least 51% American origin). Further, in compliance with the Choose California Produce Act, Chapter 7 Part 1 of Division 21 of the Food and Agricultural Code, where price, fitness, and quality being equal, the District will give preference to supplies and produce that is grown, manufactured or produced in the state of California. Hence, a Certificate of Origin must be included with your response for each item listed in the Bid, Request for Quote or Request for Proposal. Your response may be deemed as “unresponsive” and ineligible for contract award for failure to include information and certifications requested.
