The Civil False Claims Act (FCA) is a powerful tool to combat fraud, waste, and abuse in federal contracting. It also has unique provisions that make it a major legal and business risk for federal contractors and subcontractors. In this 90-minute introductory-level webinar, you will gain an understanding of the FCA, its substantive and procedural provisions, and issues that can arise when the FCA is applied to federal contracts and subcontracts.

This webinar offers the valuable perspectives of respected FCA practitioners who represent the Federal Government, "qui tam" relators who bring actions on the Government's behalf, and contractors/subcontractors defending against such actions. The panel will address:

  • Overview of key FCA provisions that make it a power enforcement tool for the Government and risk to contractors/subcontracts
  • How FCA cases against federal contractors/subcontractors develop and proceed, both with and without qui tam relators
  • Theories and strategies for prosecuting a FCA case from the perspective of the Government and qui tam relators
  • Theories and strategies for defending FCA cases
  • FCA issues, scenarios, and risks unique to federal contracting and subcontracting
