For over a decade, the FAR Mandatory Disclosure Rule (MDR) has generated hundreds of millions of dollars annually in settlements to the federal government.  The GSA Office of Inspector General (OIG), in particular, is one of the major federal operations that is reviewing and receiving disclosures.  The GSA Federal Supply Schedules (FSS) program, by design, presents a significant risk to contractors due to the nature of disclosure and price monitoring requirements.  As attorneys guide their clientele through a mandatory disclosure, they may look, from time to time, to external advisors to quantify financial exposure in MDR matters.  This session will explore common financial damages analyses associated with a disclosure and best practices for employing such analyses based on real world experience with the GSA OIG mandatory disclosure team.

A discussion by Leo Alvarez and Jeff K. Clayton of Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP will include:

  • An overview of the mandatory disclosure rule
  • Conducting an internal investigation and timing of the disclosure
  • Cost impacts and settlement strategies
  • Moving beyond a mandatory disclosure
