Business Regulatory Issues Committee (BRIC)

Chairs: Joel Hinzman, Oracle; and Scott Klein of CGI

This new committee provides an education channel for government and industry stakeholders operating in the Federal market space.  Through the BRIC, these stakeholders will be afforded an opportunity to share their expert perspectives on cross-cutting issues in their respective ecosystems, thereby promoting understanding that, hopefully, will translate into improved business and agency mission performance.

The committee will conduct periodic meetings, during which, a visiting guest will discuss key governance issues pending in the Federal market space.  In addition, members will have an opportunity to alert their peers of other business-affecting issues in the contracting community.  Because the BRIC addresses cross-cutting issues, members are encouraged to solicit participation from multiple disciplines across their organizations, including business, public affairs, law, contracting, and compliance.
