Marc Alain Bohn participated in Risk and Compliance Magazine's Mini-Roundtable on FCPA Corruption Issues for Government Contractors, and was quoted regarding the ways in which the regulatory risk and compliance landscape has evolved for government contractors in recent years. "It is clear that there are more government resources being focused on uncovering and prosecuting corporate corruption today than in years past, but that is not all. It is the way those resources are now being marshalled and leveraged that should draw the attention of government contractors, from the Dodd-Frank whistleblower program ... to an unprecedented level of collaboration and coordination between the US government and enforcement agencies in other countries," Bohn said.
With respect to advice to government contractors on effectively managing FCPA risk in the course of routine business around the world, Bohn said the key is for companies to triage compliance efforts and focus on issues that present the highest risk. "While there is no 'one-size-fits-all' program when it comes to compliance, contractors should seek to implement a well-constructed program that helps to prevent, detect and remediate misconduct," he said.
