In the wake of recent headlines concerning corrupt use and handling of U.S. funds, nonprofits relying on federal grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts must take away key lessons to protect their program funds and revenue. It's more than bribery. During this program, our panelists—including a key representative from USAID’s Inspector General's Office—will examine the characteristics of several recent events as well as findings regarding fraudulent payments to vendors and corrupt employment practices in the Middle East impacting the work of U.S. non-governmental organizations (international NGOs). This program will take you beyond the four corners of the federal False Claims Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to provide participants with legal and practical solutions to protect your nonprofit's program integrity and revenue. Among other things, we will address:

  • Identifying red flags related to potential corrupt practices, human trafficking, and money laundering overseas
  • Establishing a robust reporting and recordkeeping system that moves information within your organization to the right decision-makers
  • Interacting with your federal sponsoring agency—when and what to disclose and report, and how to build a strong, collaborative relationship
