If you are having difficulty selling goods or services to purchase entities from a government undersigned because that government has not complied with that agreement, contact the U.S. Department of Commerce Trade Agreements Negotiations and Compliance tender line. The Center can help you understand your rights under this agreement, and can notify relevant U.S. government officials to help you resolve your issue. The U.S. government may, if necessary, raise the specific facts of your situation with the government of the other country concerned and ask the officials of that government to reconsider the matter. As a last resort, the U.S. government can invoke the WTO dispute settlement process. Behold: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Cameroon, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Georgia, India, Jordan, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Mongolia, New Zealand, Oman, Panama, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Ukraine.
In addition, four intergovernmental organizations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the International Trade Centre (CITI), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), have observer status on the WTO`s Public Procurement Committee, which manages the agreement. The agreement contains a number of detailed procedural obligations that the awarding entities must fulfil in order to ensure the effective application of their basic principles (Articles VII to XVI). In many respects, these provisions codify recognized good procurement practices, which aim at efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
