Alliance Urges Council for Regulations
“The taxpayers benefit much more from improving business practices in the public contracting market under the revised rules,” said Coleman.

The organization believes that such regulations lead government to continue awarding contracts to firms that have violated procurement and other federal laws, in some cases repeatedly.
