Overview
The Organizational Conflicts of Interest Workshop will provide an in-depth analysis of both OCI theory and OCI practice. The workshop will first analyze different types of OCI's, regulatory provisions in the FAR and DFARS, and the extensive and evolving case law from the GAO and courts.

The next part of the workshop will be unique-it will provide practical, hands-on guidance to contractors (and counsel who advise and assist them) so that they can understand and address OCI issues in order to maximize business opportunities, makes wise business choices, and avoid wasting Bid and Proposal resources on lost causes, and as well as to government agency procurement officials who want to understand how they can identify and resolve OCI's.

The workshop will provide examples, case-based discussion scenarios, and take-home materials that contractors can adapt and use.

After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Recognize conflicts pre, post and during a contract period
  • Create policies to mitigate conflicts of interest
  • Communicate to others when there is a conflict of interest
