Bradley attorney Aron Beezley was quoted in Law360's series of government contract policies midyear report. The U.S. Department of Justice recently updated guidance, specifically from the Criminal Division, on how they evaluate corporate compliance programs when investigating companies. Although it is not explicitly directed towards federal contractors, attorneys, like Beezley, have deemed it as important information for contractors to adhere to.
"For government contractors in particular, I think the big takeaway is that they should be reviewing their internal [Federal Acquisition Regulation]-based business ethics and compliance programs in light of the DOJ's new guidance and should be updating their FAR-mandated compliance programs," said Aron Beezley. "That's the thing that's unique for government contractors."
