Ethics and Compliance
The last several years have seen an explosion in new ethics and compliance requirements for government contractors. As a result, more than ever, companies must ensure that their federal procurement policies, practices and procedures conform to current federal laws and regulations.
Jackson Kelly has experience developing and implementing contractor ethics and compliance programs that meet the standards of the Procurement Integrity Act, the Federal Acquisition Regulation and Federal Sentencing Guidelines. Attorneys also provide comprehensive, on-site ethics and compliance training carefully tailored to the needs of each client and the level of authority for each key officer and employee. Additionally, the Firm conducts audits of clients’ current ethics and compliance programs. The audits include on-site visits, review of relevant documents and interviews with key management and staff to identify potential ethics and compliance issues and prepare comprehensive risk mitigation strategies.
