New Dates Due to Government Shutdown

ACI’s 2nd National Forum on FOCI Is the only comprehensive event of its kind.

Companies under FOCI need to stay alert on many fronts. With DSS being the primary agency in charge of overseeing FOCI mitigation, DOE and DHS also have their respective requirements. In addition, while each of the various mitigation instruments in NISPOM already presents its own challenges, it can become even more complex when a National Security Determination (NID) comes into play.

Further, the intersection of FOCI mitigation with the CFIUS approval process requires a well thought-out strategy toward maximizing the chances of a favorable outcome – a process that has become even more complex given the recent passing of the anticipated CFIUS Reform (FIRRMA).

This FOCI conference will bring together key stakeholders from government, industry and private practice, who are involved in some of the most significant matters to date. This year’s agenda has been revamped to provide solutions to the industry’s most pressing needs and to ensure practical and worthwhile discussions and takeaways.
