Time 60 minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

For many companies compliance is the buzzword of the day—and if it’s not, it should be. Both new and veteran government contractors must ensure that they have an effective compliance program in place, and that it is updated and audited appropriately.

In this program, attorneys W. Barron A. Avery and Jacqlyn Rovine will discuss the key components of an effective compliance program, how to tailor a program to an individual company’s needs, how to assign responsibility within an organization for compliance oversight, and how to maximize a program’s effectiveness through periodic auditing and training.

The program will cover core compliance requirements including the False Claims Act, mandatory disclosure, anti-bribery, gifts and gratuities, human trafficking, and internal reporting mechanisms.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the importance of compliance systems
  2. Identify must-haves for an effective compliance program
  3. Provide practical guidelines for implementing an effective compliance program
