Course Description:

The ethics mandates of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) define how companies that do business with the federal government must govern and conduct themselves. Unless you know how to translate these mandates into an effective ethics program, your company is heading into risky territory.

From mandatory disclosure to internal controls, there are so many facets of compliance. But compliance is just part of your challenge. You must also use ethical practices proactively—leveraging your program to develop a workplace, culture and workforce where fraud and misconduct can’t take hold.

Don’t risk devastating fines or even jail time: let an expert show you how to build an ethics program that protects your company and your bottom line.
