AOAC BOD June 2018 Pre-Meeting Materials

II. 2018 Business Plan Progress Q2 A. Analytical Excellence: Stakeholder Process Improvements, Phase I – A la carte Pricing

Multi-year contracts do not meet all customers’ needs (the traditional 2 Stakeholder Panels per year, 3-5 working groups, SMPR development, Expert Review Panel). The following components have been priced to accommodate modified work schedules, and are applicable when there is an existing, relevant stakeholder panel in place to provide infrastructure for consensus-based decisions. Prices were determined by averaging actual costs from several projects (SPIFAN, SPDS, SPADA) over a number of years. This model was successfully used to develop a proposal to keep the AOAC SPIFAN project moving forward, while consideration of larger improvements to the stakeholder panel process are in development.

Price:* $60,000
