Course Description:

When it comes to the Federal Acquisition Regulation’s conflict of interest regulations, even today’s most experienced contractors risk noncompliance.

Recent changes create obligations that change the way contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, consultants and government procurement officials work together.

Here’s what you must know to keep conflicts of interest from triggering everything from bid protests to suspension, debarment and prosecution.

This webinar takes you to the heart of the government’s sharp focus on OCI/PCI and compliance obligations. Our experts will clarify key principles, including a review of 2014 proposed amendments to the 2011 FAR conflict of interest rules.

Master best practices for staying compliant — and competitive. From the regulatory framework, to best practices to identify, avoid, mitigate and manage actual or potential conflicts of interest, you’ll learn how best to protect your business from bid protests and even prosecution under the False Claims Act. You’ll also have the chance to ask your specific questions during the live Q&A portion of this webinar.

Reserve your space now to create a new OCI/PCI strategy that makes the government your ally, not your adversary, including:

  • Understand the core principles of personal and organizational conflict of interest law in the context of procurements governed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation.
  • Become familiar with the new personal conflict of interest rules and the pending proposed changes to the rules governing organizational conflicts of interest.
  • Identify steps that can be taken to prevent actual or potential conflict of interest and appearances of impropriety from arising.
  • Understand a contractor’s obligation to proactively manage potential conflict of interest situations at the prime contractor and subcontractor level.
  • Learn how and when a contractor should approach the government with a conflict concern, and what preemptive steps can be taken to increase the chance of a successful resolution of the problem.
  • Learn how to respond after receiving notice that the government has identified actual or potential conflict of interest involving your firm or its employees.
  • Understand the ramifications for failing to properly address personal and organizational conflicts of interest.
  • And much, much more!

Remember, federal procurements are already hotly competitive and under intense scrutiny. A solid understanding of the new OCI/PCI environment is a bottom-line business asset.
