Program Summary: Government procurement deals with the purchase of goods and services by government entities, whether local, county or state. A myriad of statutes and regulations cover how governmental entities may purchase the goods and services they need to serve the public. The often-large amounts of money spent on such goods and services also make the procurement area a target for abuse and fraud. This symposium will focus on government procurement and avoiding fraud in the procurement process. The issues addressed will include compliance and ways that purchasing entities sometimes deviate from compliance, criminal antitrust violations, and procurement/government contract fraud. The program will also include a panel discussion on fraud and fraud prevention.
Who Should Attend? This symposium is intended for public employees such as purchasing agents, accountants and auditors, attorneys and counsel, detectives and prosecutors who regularly deal with procurement issues, oversee those that do or investigate and prosecute this type of fraud.
