Webinar: False Claims Act Update for Government Contractors, June 6

June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and qui tam whistleblowers continue to actively pursue enforcement actions against government contractors under the civil False Claims Act (FCA), presenting heightened risks to contractors subject to an increasingly complex array of compliance obligations in fast-changing areas such as cybersecurity.  In this program, Perkins Coie Partners Alexander Canizares and Barak Cohen will provide an overview of the FCA enforcement landscape in 2024 with a focus on developments relevant to commercial contractors.

Drawing on their experience handling FCA investigations and litigation as well as mandatory disclosures, Alex and Barak will address DOJ’s procurement fraud enforcement priorities, including its Civil Cyber-Fraud Initiative focusing on using the FCA to redress non-compliance involving cybersecurity and the implications of FCA enforcement for contractors facing new and emerging programs such as DoD’s cybersecurity assessment initiative.  The presentation will also address DOJ efforts to incentivize companies to self-disclose non-compliance as well as cooperate in DOJ investigations. They will also address the latest developments related to DOJ’s use of the FCA to pursue fraud involving the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and pandemic-related loans.
