Contractor Training

In the world of federal government contracts, an educated workforce is critical to maintaining compliance with the key rules and regulations.  And, as an added benefit, a well-educated contractor often gains a reputation in government circles for “knowing its stuff,” which is not a bad thing when it comes to the competitive award environment.

If your workforce is in need of training on key FAR, SBA or Department of Labor regulations, Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC can help.  Our government contracts attorneys will structure and deliver individualized training sessions to help ensure that your employees have the knowledge they need to keep your business on the right side of the law.


Organizational Conflict of Interest Training

Avoiding organizational conflicts of interest is essential to success as a government contractor, but sometimes, a written OCI mitigation plan may not be enough.  Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC can provide your employees with training on the FAR’s OCI restrictions, GAO and federal court case law interpreting those restrictions, and best practices and policies for avoiding, neutralizing, and mitigating OCIs.

Koprince McCall Pottroff LLC’s OCI training includes:

  • Training on the FAR organizational conflict of interest rules under FAR Subpart 9.5

  • Descriptions of the three main types of organizational conflicts of interest under the FAR, and how to identify them

  • Information about how the federal courts and the GAO interpret the FAR’s organizational conflict of interest rules

  • Training on OCI mitigation best practices, such as firewalls and non-disclosure agreements

  • Preparation of formal OCI mitigation plans to respond to specific agency organizational conflict of interest concerns

  • Preparation of non-disclosure agreements to restrict the flow of information to or from affected employees

  • Information about flowing-down OCI information and OCI mitigation plans to subcontractors and consultants

  • Much more


Giving your employees formal OCI training not only helps avoid OCIs, but may help demonstrate to procuring agencies that your business takes its OCI obligations very seriously.
