The ABA Section of Public Contract Law is a powerful force in advancing public procurement policy. Many of the Section's substantive committees are making an impact on procurement-related regulations in their special areas of expertise. Written comments on proposed regulations, prepared by the Section's communities and then reviewed and approved by the Section's Council, are submitted to government agencies. Comments have been submitted on high-profile topics including acquisition reform, commercial item acquisition, bid protest procedures, cost allowability and cost accounting, health care and pharmaceutical pricing, and rights in intellectual property.
