Procurement Collusion Strike Force Webinar
December 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Earlier this month, and with great fanfare, DOJ announced the creation of a Procurement Collusion Strike Force to combat antitrust and related crimes in Federal procurement. The concept of a Strike Force is not novel. In October 2006, for example, the DOJ announced the formation of a then-new National Procurement Fraud Task Force within DOJ’s criminal division, an effort that claimed credit for a large number of investigations and prosecutions. The idea behind all of them is to marshal federal enforcement resources from various agencies to focus on a single problem. In this case, the perceived problem is collusion among government contractors in violation of U.S. antitrust and procurement laws.
On December 11, PCI will be hosting a one-hour webinar focusing on the Strike Force and its implications for Government contractors and subcontractors. The webinar will focus on:
- The nature of the Strike Force and how it will work,
- The types of activities government contractors routinely undertake that could create an appearance of collusion, and
- Concrete steps contractors can take to make themselves less of a target for the strike force.
The webinar will feature Sheppard Mullin partners Jonathan Aronie (Government contracts), David Douglass (white collar), and Robert Magielnicki (antitrust). We hope you can join us.
