The Ugly Side of Public Contracts

Learn best practices to protect you and your company from accusations of a crime or fraud.

Although government contractors have become essential to governance, they face a heightened risk of being accused of a crime or fraud, and more serious consequences once an accusation has been made. This topic will cover the ugly side of government contracting - the conduct that causes the government to change from a valued customer to a prosecutor looking for punishment. Discuss the typical but often unintended conduct that leads to accusations of bribes, gratuities, kickbacks, conflicts of interest, false statements, receipt of source selection or a competitor's proposal information, bid rigging, making false statements and submitting false invoices or claims. Most importantly, the topic will cover the best practices to protect you and your company from accusations of a crime or fraud, and responding to and resolving accusations when they occur. Obtain the tools to recognize and avoid risky behavior and circumstances, and resolve issues if they arise.
