Supporting Coalitions

The National Association of Government Contractors (NAGC) may join or form coalitions with other like-minded organizations to promote a position important to the government contracting community on the state or federal level. Here we list current coalitions NAGC is participating in, or spearheading as an advocate for small businesses in government procurement.

Coalition Supporting Repeal of Forced Project Labor Agreements is designed to track and disseminate news and relevant information about the detrimental effects of government-mandated project labor agreements (PLAs). PLAs are costly and discriminatory pre-hireagreements that have the effect of preventing small businesses from competing for government contracts.

Government Withholding Relief Coalition (GWRC)
The Government Withholding Relief Coalition (GWRC) was formed to repeal a sweeping new requirement mandating that federal, state, and local governments withhold 3% from payments for goods and services. This unprecedented withholding mandate will affect all government contracts as well as Medicare payments, Farm payments, and some grants. The effective date was initially set for January 1, 2011 by Section 511 of the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act (P.L. 109-222) that was signed on May 17, 2006. It was delayed one year to January 1, 2012 by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 111-5) that was signed into law on February 17, 2009.
