International government contracting is a growing option for businesses to expand and remain competitive in this increasingly global marketplace.
Securing a contract to provide goods and services to international governments requires a clear understanding of a broad array of rules, from export controls to anti-corruption requirements. Broader international trade agreements and special procurement obligations may also apply, binding contractors to a complex and unforeseen body of restrictons that may be costly to navigate.
Federal Publications Seminars' program on International Government Contracting will review major legal and practical issues contractors should understand when engaging in international government procurement. This course will explain the global government contracts landscape while offering guiding insights from seasoned advisors with experience working on a variety of international contracting matters.
Some sample topics covered in this program include:
-- Foreign Military Sales, Direct Commercial Sales
-- Free Trade, Protectionism, Domestic Preferences
-- Export Controls, FCPA, OECD Anti-Corruption
-- UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law
-- World Bank, USAID programs
-- Comparative Law Issues
-- Offsets in International Defense Contracting
-- International Arbitration & Contract Performance
