5-Part FCPA Podcast Series feat. Eric Feldman: DOJ 2019 Guidance

By | AMI News, Eric Feldman, Media

In a podcast series sponsored by Affiliated Monitors, Inc. (AMI), Tom Fox visits with Eric Feldman, Senior Vice President of AMI. 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. The 2019 Guidance asks three fundamental questions prosecutor should ask; all other questions are divided into these categories: (1) “Is the corporation’s compliance program well designed”; (2) “Is the program being applied earnestly and in good faith?” In other words, is the program being implemented effectively?

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.

FCPA Compliance & Ethics Blog Series on the Benczkowski Memo

By | Eric Feldman, Media, Press, Vin DiCianni

In conjunction with the 5-part podcast series that Tom Fox hosted in January with Eric Feldman and Vin DiCianni on the DOJ announcements over the past year, Feldman joined Fox for a blog post to consider what strategies companies can use based upon these guidelines. The podcast series will explore how the Benczkowski Memo (the “Memo”) and other DOJ guidance into compliance programs can be used by compliance professionals to create more robust compliance programs. Feldman believes the Memo can be used as both a sword and shield in furtherance of more effective compliance programs.

In this second blog post, DiCianni emphasizes that the DOJ now mandates companies which come before them have an effective compliance program. Companies must demonstrate they had an effective compliance program, not a paper compliance program.
