Government contractors are now subject to unprecedented scrutiny. Conducting business in an ethical manner has never been more important. Years of success in the government contracting market, as well as personal reputations, can be ruined by one ethical lapse.
The government recently imposed significant new ethics and compliance requirements designed to prevent and detect improper conduct. Join Aronson & Company’s Tom Marcinko and Ethical Advocate’s Jacob Blass for a complimentary webinar on October 6, 2010, as they discuss the requirements contained in the “Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct”, FAR Subpart 3.10 and FAR clause 52.203-13. The discussion will include:
- Which contractors are exempt from the requirements
- Differing requirements for large versus small businesses
- Codes of Conduct
- Mandatory Disclosure
- Internal Controls
- Training Options and Advantages
- Benefits of an Ethical Environment
Contractors who do not comply with these requirements are subject to debarment, suspension, and their contract may be terminated for default. In addition, contractors who do not implement the required compliance program will be subject to much greater penalties should they experience an ethical lapse. Register here today to ensure that your ‘ethical house’ is in order!
