Ethical Interactions with Government and Elected Officials
Whether a company holds government contracts, engages in lobbying, or participates in the political process, it is important to understand the rules of the road. Did you know that some government officials may not even be able to accept a cup of coffee? Or, that once a Request for Proposals has been issued for a government contract, restrictions on communications may exist? One misstep can have severe consequences such as monetary penalties or loss of government contracting opportunities - not to mention, reputational risk.
During this program, we will discuss the varying laws and considerations that apply on the federal, state, and local level. The goal is to position your company to start 2024 on the right foot with an eye toward developing policies, procedures, and protocols aimed at avoiding common pitfalls while ensuring that each interaction with government and elected officials is in full compliance with the law.
