October 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$199
Government procurement is subject to special rules and regulations. Most critically (and dangerously!), many actions that are normal in commercial contracting are prohibited in government contracting. Violations can lead to serious contractual, financial, and even criminal sanctions.
That makes it vital that contractors and their employees recognize potential compliance problems and pitfalls and know when to seek guidance before the harm is done – i.e., know to stop walking before falling into the pothole.
Learn about the top ten mistakes that contractors are subject to (actually, more than ten, but who’s counting?). Coverage will include:
- Bribery and gratuities
- Contingent Fees
- False claims and false statements
- Product substitution
- Procurement integrity
- Hiring from the government
- Organizational conflicts of interest
- Illegal negotiation tactics
