New Pricing and Regulatory Compliance Oversight Committee

On July 16th at the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce offices in Tysons, the Coalition will be launching a new Pricing and Regulatory Compliance Oversight Committee (the PRCO).  Pricing and audit issues are often discussed in the existing committees typically with a focus on existing policies and proposed changes.  For example, we have discussed reform of the Price Reduction Clause (aka the Competition Reduction Clause) in many, if not all, of the committees.  As the name suggests, the PRCO will focus on pricing, regulatory compliance, audits and oversight.  The PRCO will allow the Coalition to better coordinate and leverage our members’ collective domain expertise to support contractor ethics and compliance programs/offices, including in-house counsel, Finance & Accounting, and Compliance departments.

The PRCO will provide a central focal point for monitoring the latest developments in pricing issues and regulatory compliance.  The new committee will be the engine for developing and delivering training, information, analysis and commentary on the compliance issues, challenges and opportunities facing the entire procurement community.  The Coalition will empower the Committee to develop new training to supplement and complement our MAS Basic Training and In-house Counsel courses

As part of this effort we will look forward to a robust Myth-Busters dialogue with the Oversight community in an effort to share best practices around ethics and contract compliance.  The PRCO will meet on at least a quarterly basis and will also support Coalition forums and webinars throughout the year.  For more information and to register for the PRCO, please contact Jason Baccus at

On the morning of July 16th, the PRCO will kick-off with a training forum “Labor Contract Compliances: the world according to the Department of Labor.”  Among the topics to be discussed at the July 16th training forum will be:

  • The Service Contract Act
    • Contract requirements and disputes
    • Wage determinations
    • Compliance in the MAS contract context
