The FAR Councils have issued a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation to include new provisions governing personal conflicts of interest of contractor and subcontractor employees supporting or performing certain government acquisition functions. 

These new regulations impose significant new and potentially burdensome compliance requirements on federal contractors and subcontractors that support or perform "acquisition functions closely associated with inherently governmental functions." With an effective date of December 2, 2011, it is imperative that contractors be thinking proactively about how to enhance existing compliance programs to address the new personal conflict of interest screening, oversight, training, and disclosure requirements.

Join us for this complimentary webinar. We will describe the key provisions of the new rule, offer recommended steps for compliance, discuss the possible pitfalls, and answer your questions.
