The Procurement Integrity Act: A High-Risk Area for Contractors
July 29, 2015
Starts: 1:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 2:30 PM (EDT)
The government is serious about maintaining a "fair playing field" for contractors. So serious, in fact, that it established the Procurement Integrity Act as a criminal statute. The purpose of the Procurement Integrity Act is to maintain and establish a fair playing field for government contractors. Any contractor or subcontractor found to be in violation can face some harsh sanctions — including prosecution, fines, penalties, prison, loss of business and exclusion from government contracting. Violations of the Procurement Integrity Act can also provide a viable basis to file a bid protest at the Government Accountability Office or the Court of Federal Claims.
Unfortunately, not all contractors and subcontractors know what it takes to stay compliant. From the way they conduct themselves in employment discussions with government employees, to how they go about obtaining information during procurements, they could be risking everything.
