With ever-increasing scrutiny directed towards government contractors, it is becoming increasingly important to understand the ethical and compliance obligations of doing business with the federal government. Without an understanding of the robust set of internal controls and compliance required of federal contractors, a company is set up for disaster. Among the many ethics and compliance obligations federal contractors must follow are the mandatory disclosure rules. Although the “new” rules have been in effect for almost five years, they continue to cause much confusion and uncertainty among contractors.
In this 90-minute webinar, Sarah Graves of Husch Blackwell LLP will provide an introduction to ethics and compliance obligations in federal procurement, with a focus on the rules requiring contractors to disclose certain types of misconduct in connection with federal contracts.
This 90-minute webinar entitled "Ethics, Compliance and Mandatory Disclosures in Federal Procurement" is scheduled for Thursday, May 9, at 1 PM Eastern. To register, follow this link:
