In the current enforcement environment, Government focus on conflicts of interest is at an all-time high. - James Peyster
Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Experts speaking at an upcoming webinar hosted by L2 Federal Resources will explain the complicated dynamics of organizational and personal conflicts of interest in government contracting in an age of increasing visibility.
This webinar will provide an overview of the key principles of conflicts of interest old and new, including a review of the new personal conflict of interest rules which took effect on December 2, 2011 and a preview of the pending changes to the rules for addressing organizational conflicts of interest. Having established the regulatory framework, the webinar will also provide best practice tips for identifying, avoiding, mitigating, and managing actual or potential conflicts of interest so that the government becomes your ally in the process, rather than your adversary. The 90-minute webinar, entitled “Organizational and Personal Conflicts of Interest - New and Pending Rules,” is scheduled for Thursday, February 9, at 1:00 (EST).
