Crisis & Compliance In the Federal Marketplace: AMI to host webinar — May 5 @ 12pm ET

By AMI News, Eric Feldman, Events, Rod Grandon
Crisis and Compliance in the Federal Marketplace:

Maintaining Effective Ethics and Compliance Oversight, Controls, and Culture in the Midst of Coronavirus Pandemic Disruption

The disruption brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic has ensured that the government contracting sector and organizations working on federally funded projects are no longer conducting business as usual. From an ethics and compliance perspective, organizations large and small, profit and not-for-profit, need to maintain a robust ethics and compliance program, but now it is within a starkly different environment. Government contractors, grant recipients, and others working on federally funded programs must understand and respond to changing compliance risks to maintain the adequacy and effectiveness of their policies and procedures.

In this webinar our panelists will discuss current challenges and practical responses to help organizations maintain the effectiveness of their ethics and compliance programs in the current crisis.

Transforming corporate cultures by placing CFEs in top echelons — ACFE Board of Regents Interview for Fraud Magazine

By AMI News, Eric Feldman, Media

AMI’s Eric Feldman sat down with the other members of ACFE’s Board of Regents to discuss the importance of CFE’s in fostering corporate culture. This conversation appears in the September/October issue of FRAUD Magazine.

CFEs can trumpet the age-old “tone at the top” concept, but if top executives aren’t working to transform corporate cultures throughout organizations then fraud prevention and deterrence will continually run up against roadblocks. The members of the ACFE Board of Regents know this from their years of consulting with C-suite execs who want to tackle fraud but also have to wrestle with timid general counsels, fluctuating quarterly reports and concerned stakeholders.

The Board gathered at the beginning of the recent 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference to opine on the latest anti-fraud issues during a 90-minute Fraud Magazine interview.

They look at the Department of Justice (DOJ) Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs, (the “2019 Guidance”), which was released in April 2019. Over the next five podcasts we will explore what the 2019 Guidance changes are from the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Program (2017 Guidance), released in February 2017, the structure and emphasis of the 2019 Guidance and what it means for the compliance practitioner going forward.

Listen to the full series below, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Day 1:

In this first episode, they begin with some of Feldman’s observations on the 2019 Guidance.

Eric Feldman featured on the SCCE Compliance Perspectives Podcast — the Benczkowski Memo & Corporate Monitors

By AMI News, Eric Feldman, Media
via Adam Turteltaub at SCCE

In October 2018 Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the US Department of Justice issued a memo entitled “Selection of Monitors in Criminal Division Matters.”  Some took the memo to herald the end of corporate monitorships.

Not so, says Eric Feldman of Affiliated Monitors.  In this podcast he explains that, instead, the memo was designed to improve both the selection of monitors and the process for determining whether having a monitor is appropriate.

Over the years it had become the default to have a monitor when a Deferred Prosecution Agreement was put in place.  Now a cost/benefit analysis will be conducted before going down this often long road.  The DOJ will be examining factors such as who was involved in the wrongdoing and what progress the company has made on its own to strengthen its compliance efforts.
