The ethics mandates of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) define how government contractors must conduct themselves. And there are many facets of compliance, from mandatory disclosure to internal controls.  Unless you know how to translate these mandates into an effective ethics program, your company could be heading into risky territory.

But did you also know that an effective ethics program can benefit your bottom line? Ethical companies keep more money, have higher profits and endure longer – and they are also better protected against fraud, theft and misconduct.

Sign up today to let an expert show you how to build an ethics program that protects your company and your bottom line.

Michael Palmer is a top authority on the FAR ethics mandates.  In this 90-minute webinar, he explains how to build an ethics program that protects your organization against fraud and misconduct.  He also shows you how to go beyond compliance, integrating ethics into talent management and workplace culture to raise your organization’s competence—and its chances of winning more government business.

Avoid fines and even jail time…while growing your business!  You’ll gain practical pointers for developing an ethics program that complies with FAR mandates and Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations. From implementing your internal control system, to avoiding improper business practices, you’ll learn how to build in the right protections.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
