CLE Available, Webinar
July 20, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM ET

Please join members of Holland & Knight's Government Contracts Group and White Collar Defense and Investigations Team as we discuss the federal civil False Claims Act (FCA) and special considerations for government contractors.

Our panel will provide a "big picture," practical overview of the FCA and the particular risks that federal contractors face. We will discuss:

  • the source of most FCA suits
  • the risks posed by FCA suits
  • understanding Civil Investigative Demands (CIDs) and other signs your company may be facing an FCA suit
  • the collateral consequences of an FCA suit, including suspension/debarment

We also will focus on effective steps that contractors can take to avoid FCA suits, including:

  • understanding and abiding by the Federal Acquisition Regulation's (FAR) Mandatory Disclosure Rule
  • proper handling of whistleblowers
  • crafting effective compliance programs
