GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS COMPLIANCE ISSUES

Our attorneys provide guidance and assistance to clients in not only avoiding investigations, audits, conflicts of interest, and legal or contractual violations, but also in handling client responses to these situations. We help our clients deal with agency inspector general (IG) investigations and respond to IG subpoenas; with audits conducted by the Defense Contract Audit Agency and other federal agencies; and with responding to and resolving allegations of fraud and violations of the False Claims Act, False Statements Act and other criminal statutes.

We advise clients regarding the existence and avoidance of organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) that may affect contracting opportunities, and we assist them with the preparation of mitigation plans to overcome any OCIs. Our attorneys also prepare contractor codes of business ethics and conduct, now a FAR requirement, and counsel clients through the difficult and sensitive suspension and debarment processes.
