This summer the Supreme Court decided two government contracts cases. In Kingdomware, the Court decided that the Department of Veterans Affairs was required to follow the "rule of two" regarding veteran-owned small businesses and service-disabled veteran owned small business in all VA procurements including those involving GSA Schedule orders. This case opens the door to increased opportunities for VOSBs and SDVOSBs. In Escobar, the Supreme Court recognized the implied certification theory of liability but stressed the importance of materiality in a False Claims Act case.

In this webinar, learn what these cases mean for contractors including: how VOSBs and SDVOSBs can benefit from Kingdomware and how all contractors should update their internal controls in the wake of Escobar. 

This program is not available for CLE, CPE, CLP or other credits as a live program.
