Procurement Fraud: Best Practices for Avoiding Risk During Heightened Government Scrutiny

May 19, 2021
Bass, Berry & Sims
Webinar

This past January, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that procurement fraud recoveries comprised the second largest category of fraud recoveries in Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, a trend that continued from FY 2019. With last November’s announcement of DOJ’s intent to expand its Procurement Collusions Strike Force (PCSF), we expect to see a continued trend of heightened enforcement and recoveries by government agencies in FY 2021.

Please join us for this timely webinar where members of the Government Contracts Practice at Bass, Berry & Sims will be joined by members of the firm whose practice focuses on False Claims Act Litigation to discuss the current state of affairs, including the following:

  • Enforcement update and issues to watch.
  • Overview of significant settlements in 2020.
  • New developments from PCSF.
  • Best practices to protect your company from fraud risks.
