Federal contractors are facing intense government oversight of organizational and personal conflicts.

Your OCI/PCI compliance plan must cover everything from individual procurements to M&A strategies. If it doesn’t, you could face suspension and debarment, and even prosecution under the False Claims Act. In fact, oversight has become so intense that even apparent (vs. actual) conflicts of interest can trigger bid protests...and worse.

This is no time for guesswork. You must understand what the FAR’s OCI and PCI regulations require and the best way to deal with conflicts. Here is the expert guidance you need to comply and get proactive handling conflicts that could put your government business at risk.

In this 90-minute webinar, experts from Crowell & Moring LLP help you master the FAR’s regulations on both personal and organizational conflicts of interest.  Within this regulatory framework, James Peyster and Rob Sneckenberg show you contractors’ specific compliance obligations for each FAR conflict-of-interest provision.

Make the government your ally, not your adversary. In addition to compliance responsibilities, federal contractors will learn best practices they can use to protect their business from bid protests, M&A pitfalls, suspension and debarment and even prosecution under the False Claims Act. You will also have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now and learn how to identify, avoid, mitigate and manage conflicts of interest under the FAR, including:

  • The core principles for all three types of OCIs: biased ground rules, impaired objectivity, and unequal access to information
  • How to recognize and avoid or mitigate actual or potential OCIs
  • The dangers that the doctrine of unfair competitive advantage (UCA) raises for even the appearance of impropriety
  • What specific compliance obligations correspond to FAR personal conflict of interest provisions
  • How and when a contractor should approach the government with a conflict concern
  • Preemptive steps for increasing the chance of resolving concerns successfully
  • The ramifications of failing to properly address personal and organizational conflicts.

You will finish this webinar understanding OCI and PCI regulations inside and out. Don’t miss the chance to get these insights—so you can get out in front of potential conflicts.
