The Federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) is the Federal Government’s primary enforcement tool for combating non-compliance in federal government prime and subcontracts. The FCA covers all entities that sell goods and services to the U.S. Government (or to a state or company using Government funds), and can result in treble damages, plus over $23k in penalties per violation. The Act also provides for a bounty to whistleblowers who file FCA allegations, expanding the Government’s eyes and ears tremendously.

In this session, Sheppard Mullin attorneys Ryan Roberts and Ariel Debin will perform a dive deep into FCA risks, utilizing lessons learned from prior FCA cases to establish practical and effective internal controls and internal investigation best practices to minimize FCA exposure when dealing with the U.S. Government (and certain states that have parallel FCA statutes). This session is suitable for lawyers, ethics/compliance professionals, and contracts administrators in a wide range of industries, including Aerospace & Defense, Professional Services, Commercial Items, Higher Education, Health Care, and Technology.

The specific objectives for this program include:

• Understanding the FCA, the activities that trigger violations, and risks for Government contractors;
• Applying the lessons learned from prior experiences to mitigate the risk of your own FCA allegations;
• Understanding contractor obligations under the Mandatory Disclosure Rule;
• Implementing the key elements of an internal compliance program tailored to fighting FCA allegations and minimizing FCA risks.
