Hello (Goodbye) to OCIs: Navigating and Mitigating Organizational Conflicts of Interest in the Federal Marketplace
Created on July 13, 2021
Government contractors regularly face challenges identifying, mitigating, and disclosing organizational conflicts of interests (OCIs), not just in pursuing prime contract opportunities, but also in considering and negotiating teaming arrangements and potential corporate transactions. To successfully navigate the OCI landscape and mitigate business risk, it is critical for contractors not just to understand the rules, regulations, and case law that inform the current federal OCI framework, but also to internalize practical strategies and tools for identifying potential conflicts and "red flags," and to develop and implement effective OCI compliance plans.
- Identify and understand the main types of OCIs, including how they arise and how they can affect a company's eligibility for contracting opportunities
- Review recent trends with respect to OCI law, including mitigation strategies and agencies' waiver authority
