: Committee on Government Business
The Committee on Government Business (CGB) was established in June of 1963 to provide a forum for FEI's members to discuss policies on federal legislation and regulation that affect government contractors.
CGB's quarterly meetings provide FEI's members the opportunity to converse with Federal Government Executives and to formulate positions and comments on government policies that impact FEI members doing business with all sectors of the Federal Government. The members of our Committee are drawn from a broad cross-section of companies which do business with the government.
While the Committee has a cross-section of companies with diverse interests its focal point is on legislative and regulatory policy issues related to government procurement, outsourcing and related business policy. In particular, it has focused on government activity that impacts financial practice standards, accounting principles, record keeping and reporting and financial rules followed by private business enterprises. Ultimately, CGB's main goal is to build consensus between government and industry.
