Avoid 5 Common Violations

Register now for this 60-minute webinar in which our expert speaker, Zach Jones, will explain how submitting false pay applications, change order requests, certified payrolls—or even failing to return an overpayment—may violate the False Claims Act.

The Department of Justice is cracking down on False Claims Act violations—don’t get caught in the crosshairs. If you work on federal projects, as either a contractor or a sub, you must follow best practices to avoid facing contract cancellation, civil fines, debarment, or even criminal prosecution.

This program will answer the following key questions:

  • What are the most common violations of the False Claims Act?
  • What is a “claim” under the False Claims Act?
  • Is a mistake on a bid, pay application, or change order a violation?
  • What is the punishment for violating the False Claims Act?
  • Can I really go to prison for one of my employees’ violations?
  • Can a subcontractor or supplier violate the False Claims Act?
  • What should I do if another contractor is violating the False Claims Act?

This presentation is appropriate for principals of firms that contract or subcontract on federally funded projects, as well as their CFOs, Controllers, Contract Administrators, Project Managers, Estimators and Business Development Professionals, and Project Engineers. Consultants who work with contractors and subcontractors on federally funded projects will also learn vital strategies from this presentation.

After attending this webinar, you will understand the purpose and history of the False Claims Act and be prepared to prevent your staff, subcontractors, and/or general contractor from violating the Act. Plus, you’ll know the common landmines to avoid when submitting bids, pay applications, change order requests, and other documents on a federally funded project.
