Crowell & Moring’s 31st annual Ounce of Prevention Seminar (OOPS) will take place in Washington, D.C. from May 5-6 and in Marina del Rey, CA on May 14. This year’s seminar, “White House v. Congress: Government Contractors Bracing for the Showdown in Washington,” will cover an array of policies and legislation that will have sweeping impacts on government contractors, including the changing landscape of internal investigations, developments and trends for contractor claims and terminations, key provisions of and potential legal challenges to the new Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order, FCA implications of the pending Supreme Court decision in Carter, protecting intellectual property from your government customer, radical proposed changes to the small business regulations, and cybersecurity risk management.

The OOPS Panel addressing health care contractors will focus on regulatory trends, enhanced focus on information and data security, and compliance challenges in the era of increased enforcement.

The keynote speaker in D.C. will be Professor Steven Schooner on the topic of ethics scandals in the last decade. The West Coast session will highlight unique issues facing companies that do business in California and/or with the State of California.
