Federal Oversight and Investigations of COVID-19 Funding: What to Expect
Holland & Knight Webinar
Please join Holland & Knight for our live webinar, "Federal Oversight and Investigations of COVID-19 Funding: What to Expect." The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) provides $2.2 trillion of emergency economic relief for businesses, tax relief for individuals and businesses, enhanced unemployment insurance for individuals and other important policies. Our presentation will explain the types of congressional oversight and government investigations that will result from the funding, as well as how investigations of allegations of fraud, waste and abuse will likely be enforced down the road.
- The new federal investigatory authorities created by the CARES Act:
- Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC)
- Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery
- COVID-19 Congressional Oversight Commission (COC)
- Other federal investigatory authorities used to enforce the CARES Act:
- U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)
- Congressional oversight committees
- Inspectors general
- U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)
- The types of risks associated with accepting CARES Act funding and how it exposes companies and individuals to enforcement and overview
- How to mitigate the risks of congressional oversight and federal investigations
We hope you will join us for this timely and highly informative presentation.
