Biobased Case Study

These materials are designed to help federal managers and others learn about best practices in biobased acquisition and application.

U.S. Federal Government Goal: The Farm Bill and E.O. 13693 require Federal Agencies to purchase biobased products in the 97 categories identified by USDA where purchases exceed $10,000 per fiscal year. Until an agency reaches 95% compliance, it must establish an annual target for the number of contracts awarded with BioPreferred and biobased criteria and a dollar value of BioPreferred and biobased products to be delivered and reported under those contracts.
