The Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the Association of Corporate Council (WMACCA) is presenting "Contracting -- Ethics, OCIs, and Emerging Compliance Trends" on March 26, 2009.

Moderated by J. Scott Hommer, III, of Venable LLP.

Panelists: James C. Fontana, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary, Alion Science and Technology Corporation; Michael R. Golden, Managing Associate General Counsel for the Procurement Law Division, Office of the General Counsel, U. S. Government Accountability Office; Curtis L. Schehr, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, DynCorp International, LLC; and William L. Walsh, Jr., of Venable LLP.

This government contracts program presented by the forum sponsor will focus on updated ethics rules and the development of compliance programs. They will pay special attention to the nexus between Organizational Conflicts of Interest (OCIs) and False Claims Act problems, and how to avoid such pitfalls. They will also try to read the tea leaves about what to expect from the new Administration in these fields.

The program will be presented live at the Tysons Corner offices of Venable LLP and by webcast.
