    There is a simple answer for that "free enterprise" . For any such contract companies can bid, so I guess the lowest bid wins, if that is a Chineese company or Mexican that does not matter as long as they comply with our trade rules and import regulations. It also depends if there would be a clause in the "request for bid" that solely US made material can be used as well as US labor, then of course the picture is different. So in this case it seems to have been an open bidding process. Blame your city/county/state.
