FOCI Rules for Federal Contractors

May 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Did you know that a government contractor cannot perform a contract requiring access to classified information unless the contractor is free of Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence (FOCI) or implements appropriate safeguards to protect national security? Also, contractors may be subject to a FOCI review for certain contracts without security clearance requirements as part of the Contracting Officer’s responsibility assessment. In addition, Foreign Ownership, Control, and Influence (FOCI) training is now required for all
DOD SBIR/STTR participants.

Please join us for a pre-recorded webinar with Govology Legal Analyst Steven Koprince who provides an overview of the FOCI rules for government contracts.

Topics include:

* Which federal contracts are subject to FOCI rules?

* How does the government evaluate whether a contractor is operating under foreign ownership, influence or control?

* What responsibilities does a contractor or potential contractor have to identify and report FOCI concerns?

* How can a contractor mitigate an actual or potential FOCI problem?

* What are some common misconceptions about the FOCI rules?
