Now more than ever, federal contractors must understand their obligations and risks in regard to conflicts of interest, both organizational and personal. Organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) that are not identified and mitigated can cause a federal contractor to lose contracts and opportunities and face potential liability. A new proposed FAR rule will require certain federal contractors to identify and mitigate the personal conflicts of interest (PCI) of their employees.

This program will explore trends and recent developments in the area of organizational conflicts of interest and provide an update and perspective on the status of the new FAR rule regarding personal conflicts of interest. The program will offer perspectives and insights from government and industry.

Discussion Topics

  • Trends and traps regarding OCI compliance and enforcement
  • A primer on the proposed PCI rule; criticisms of the proposed draft; and likely requirements for contractors
