Government Procurement Compliance & Training

Foley’s Government Procurement attorneys help you investigate alleged violations, design and implement compliance programs, and prepare self-disclosure reports. We also represent firms before federal and international tribunals and defend against federal criminal litigation.

Foley’s Government Procurement attorneys understand that, while contracting with the federal government can mean lucrative, high-volume deals for you, it also is highly regulated. The False Claims Act (FCA), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Truth In Negotiations Act (TINA), Procurement Integrity Act, and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) are only a few of the federal statutes and regulations that impose substantial financial liability on violators, potentially leading to suspension and debarment from federal contracting.

We work to help you achieve compliance and provide training necessary to maintain compliance in the areas listed below.

Represented Spartan Motors in performing over $500 million of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) automotive integration and assembly subcontracts under FAR Part 12. Negotiating those subcontracts as commercial item procurements allowed Spartan to perform this work with minimal impact on their standard commercial practices, and allowed the expedited delivery of these life saving vehicles. Foley also drafted Spartan's compliance code, developed their compliance internal controls and assisted in M&A due diligence. Contractor was investigated for alleged kickback and pled guilty to making a false statement related to a subcontract. Foley avoided suspension and debarment for this publically traded company and negotiated an Administrative Compliance Agreement with the Navy.
