Contractors who don’t fully understand the rules governing personal and organizational conflicts of interest could be risking debarment and criminal liability throughout the procurement process—from proposal preparation through contract performance.

Contractors who do understand the rules, however, are in a much better position to comply and to compete. They know how to avoid actual (or even potential) organizational conflicts. They know how to recruit talent from the government—and other contractors—without violating post-employment restrictions. And, if questions arise, they know how to show that the OCI has been mitigated.

Now, a new webinar offers you this same know-how for minimizing liabilities and preserving future contracting opportunities.

In this 90-minute webinar, attorneys from Piliero Mazzo who specialize in counseling government contractors share vital guidance for avoiding organizational and personal conflicts of interest. You’ll learn how to identify and address problems before they threaten current contracts and business development and lead to criminal liability.

Defuse recruitment risks, too.  In addition to conflicts of interest, you’ll how post-employment restrictions apply. By understanding what the rules say about factors such as past positions and former roles, you’ll be in a strong position to recruit talented personnel with government experience—without fear of reprisals. You’ll also have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for expert guidance on avoiding problems with organizational and personal conflicts of interest, including how to:

  • Understand what’s required by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provisions that govern organizational and personal conflicts of interest
  • Distinguish the three types of OCIs: unequal access to information, biased ground rules and impaired objectivity
  • Establish strategies to identify, prevent and mitigate OCIs and PCIs
  • Know when an OCI or PCI may be waived
  • Comply with statutes and regulations that relate to recruiting and engaging former government employees

Don’t let OCIs and post-government employment violations cost you contracts and liability. Don’t miss this chance to learn best practices for dealing with OCIs, preparing mitigation plans and hiring former federal employees.
