With over $2.2 billion in recoveries for the Department of Justice (DOJ) in settlements and judgments from civil cases involving fraud and the False Claims Act (FCA) in 2020, statistics confirm that the FCA remains an effective and important enforcement tool for the DOJ. Government contractors and companies that do business with government contractors should be wary of being the target of potential enforcement action in 2021 and beyond. In this webinar, PilieroMazza’s Matt Feinberg and Camilla Hundley, attorneys in the Firm’s False Claims Act Group, discuss essential protocols companies should follow to avoid or mitigate FCA risk.
The presentation will focus on, among other things:
- latest trends in FCA enforcement for government contractors;
- the importance of an FCA compliance plan for government contractors, including small businesses and participants in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) set-aside programs; and
- how to handle whistleblower complaints before they become FCA cases.
