L2 Federal Resources to Host Webinar, "FAR Mandatory Disclosure Requirements for Federal Contractors"

Share Article

Get ahead of the curve—if you’re a contractor, subcontractor, supplier, attorney or government procurement official that works on federal government projects.

Experts speaking at an upcoming webinar hosted by L2 Federal Resources will discuss how FAR mandatory disclosure requirements will be a critical issue with the expanded federal funds being spent under proposed jobs and stimulus plans.

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requires mandatory disclosures and specific compliance and ethics program requirements for ALL contractors working on federal government projects over $5 million. Among these requirements are adoption of “Codes of Business Ethics and Conduct,” implementation of training programs and internal control systems designed to prevent and/or detect fraud. Failure to comply could result in suspension or debarment, adverse performance assessment and termination for default and damages.

In addition, changes in the False Claims Act in the past three years, along with aggressive new enforcement policies from the Department of Justice, significantly increase the risks facing companies, who do business with the government or receive payment with government funds.

If you work on government projects, are you familiar with these new risks and requirements, and have you made the necessary changes to protect your business and your personnel? This webinar will help you learn how to perform gap analyses/risk assessments to determine whether your programs meet the recent requirements, and if not, how to make appropriate changes to stay in compliance.

The 90-minute webinar, entitled “FAR Mandatory Disclosure Requirements for Federal Contractors" is scheduled for Thursday, June 7, at 1:00 PM Eastern.
