The Second National Forum

Defense Industry Compliance

Staying Compliant and Competitive in a Highly Scrutinized Environment

Monday, March 13, 2006

About

Current media attention on government integrity issues and recent corruption scandals have turned up the heat on the defense industry. Can you afford the risk of non-compliance with new regulations and best practices?

Given the heightened scrutiny of defense industry practices and increasing enforcement activity, having the government as your primary customer can create a myriad of compliance challenges. Add vague export control regulations, recent corporate scandals, and the corporate culture clashes due to the increasing consolidation of the industry into the mix, and you have the potential for a full-blown compliance catastrophe.

American Conference Institute's National Forum on Defense Industry Compliance provided attendees with the critical information needed to ensure that they had a multifaceted compliance program that assisted in company proactivity in the compliance battle when dealing with procurement practices, internal financial controls, and international trade regulations. The publication includes presentations by compliance executives from premier defense companies, government officials and leading private practitioners that provide invaluable insights on:
  • Organizational conflicts of interest: developing effectivemitigation plans
  • Protecting sensitive company information from internal and external attacks
  • Implementing internal controls to prevent ITAR violations
  • FCPA enforcement update: how your compliance program needs to shape up
  • Establishing ethics and business conduct as the gold standard at your company
  • The impact of revolving door scandals on procurement integrity laws
  • Best practices on conducting an internal investigation
  • Managing government audits: what to do when the government wants to look at your books
  • What to look for when doing an M&A due diligence review (internal controls, FCPA compliance)
