Companies and others doing business or seeking to do business with state and local government entities must ensure compliance with a vast array of procurement, ethics and compliance laws governing the government contracting process. Failure to comply with these complex laws can jeopardize eligibility for those contracts – potentially disqualifying the company from valuable contracting opportunities for years, or even voiding existing contracts. Even the appearance of impropriety can undermine the government contract.
This program of advanced topics in ethics and compliance will focus on legal issues facing those engaging in state and local government contracting. This program is designed for in-house counsel, compliance officers, those managing public sector sales teams, law firms specializing in government or procurement law, nonprofit organizations, and lobbyists and government relations professionals who work together at the intersection of the public and private sectors. This half-day conference will include panels of in-house professional and relevant regulators. A spin-off of the PLI’s Corporate Political Activities program and a complement to PLI’s Government Contracts program, this focused discussion is designed for those who seek best practices and practical solutions to navigating the often-complex arena of state and local government contracting.
