  • On March 30, 2012, the parties to the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Government Procurement (commonly referred to as the “GPA”) formally adopted a revised version of the pact. The revised text expands the market access commitments made by signatories. Supporters claim these revisions will result in at least $80 billion in new global procurement opportunities for businesses in signatory countries, including the United States.
