DC Bar Government Contracts & Litigation Section Presents a Brown Bag Program - Mandatory Disclosure Wrongdoing: What's in Your Compliance Toolkit?
February 11, 2009
Effective December 12, 2008, federal contractors are now required to disclose to the government, in connection with the award, performance, or close-out of contracts and subcontracts, “credible evidence” of a violation of certain criminal “fraud” laws, the civil False Claims Act, and significant overpayments. Failure to make timely disclosure carries risk of suspension and debarment, contract termination, and negative “present responsibility” determinations. The panel will discuss the challenges industry faces in implementing these new rules, including “tools” contractors may find useful to assist in complying.
Angela Styles will be the moderator and Shauna Alonge will be speaking, along with Michael Hordell of Pepper Hamilton LLP and Scott W. MacKay, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel of Lockheed Martin Corporation.
The cost is free to Government Contracts & Litigation Section Members and Subscribers, Government and non-profit employees and law students. The program is $15.00 for Non-Section Members.
Note: This Section-sponsored educational program is not intended to be a CLE program and thus does not qualify for CLE credit in any state (including Ohio and Pennsylvania).
