Government Contracts + Public Procurement
With all the discussion around stimulus funds and opportunities in the government market, many commercial companies are considering either entering the government market for the first time or expanding sales to the government beyond commercial item procurements. While there are many appealing opportunities, these companies will need to be aware of the compliance risks they will face. Morrison & Foerster and Argy, Wiltse & Robinson have brought together an expert panel to provide all the information you will need before you enter or expand in this dynamic market.
The U.S. government as a customer operates under extensive and complex procurement statutes, regulations, and rules that are different than the commercial marketplace. A commercial company that is performing government contracts or subcontracts may face significant financial risks, administrative sanctions, or civil and criminal liability related to its government contracts unless an effective compliance program is in place. It is also important to understand the types of contracts the government uses to buy supplies and services. Come learn the key considerations for developing an effective compliance program and what you can do to mitigate and manage compliance risks related to:
o accounting and billingo contract administration and performanceo GSA Schedule complianceo ethics and conflicts of interesto intellectual propertyo small business issueso socioeconomic requirements
