Government Contract Compliance Programs: A Practical Approach for Contractors
Program Code: 170069
Seminar Date: Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Start Time: 12:00 PM EST
Registration fee: $189.00
The government has a formidable array of tools to enforce government contract (and grant) laws and regulations. The (criminal) False Statements Act; the (civil and criminal) False Claims Act(s); and Debarment from government contracting are just a certification or invoice away. This program will examine the why's, when's, who's, and how's of government contract compliance program. Besides discussing the general elements of compliance programs, the program will use the Trade Agreements Act, Organizational Conflicts of Interest, subcontracting with small businesses on set-aside contracts, and GSA MAS contracts, as examples of company-specific risk factors that should be addressed in compliance programs.

Participants will learn about:
- The enforcement background: False Statements, False Claims, and Debarment;
- The elements of every compliance program: Code of Conduct; Training; and Internal Controls;
- When your compliance program should include a Compliance Review;
- Trade Agreements Act: confirming substantial transformation, and monitoring the production process;
- Organizational Conflicts of Interest: Setting up a system to flag potential OCI situations early enough to do something about them, and having a standard mitigation procedure;
- Subcontracting on set-asides: understanding, and following, the rules on improper control over, and subcontracting with, the prime; and
- GSA MAS contracts: monitoring the Price Reduction Clause and IFF payments.
- Avoiding debarment: your compliance program as the key to present responsibility.
This fast-paced webinar will address the above issues and more while giving you the opportunity to ask our experts for advice about your unique concerns.
