Could this be it?
ROM stands for rate of markup, FC stands for fixed cost, and VC/S stands for ratio of variable cost per unit to Selling price.

I'm an English teacher myself. One of my students got an e-mail (part of a sring of emails) from one of his company's suppliers mentioning the terms "Rom price" and "firm fixed price" as opposed ideas... the thing is, i never got to figure out exactly what "Rom price" means. Could they have misspelt it?
