Session 805: US Government Contracting Compliance: Managing
Supply Chain Ethics and Compliance Risk for the World’s Single
Tuesday, October 17, 2017,
3: 45 – 4: 45 pm
The federal government awards contracts
for goods and services exceeding $500
billion annually, procuring everything from
office supplies to complex weapons systems.
Infrastructure and other spending initiatives
will draw new companies into this already enormous market, and while it is a
market with great financial potential, it is a heavily regulated market, fraught with
penalties, requirements, and consequences for the unwary contractors. Learn about
significant ethics and compliance risks for government contractors, how these key
clauses differ from commercial work, and how you can avoid the traps that befall
many new – and experienced – government contractors each year.
To hear more, attend SCCE’s 16th Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute in
Las Vegas, Nevada. Visit

Session 701: The Risks in Assessing Risk
Monday, October 16, 2017,
3:00 – 4:00 pm
A great deal of behavioral economic
and other research has revealed that we
humans are nowhere near as good at
assessing risk as we think. Worse, little
things can seriously affect our ability to understand risk. Come to this session to
learn how our understanding of risk could go very wrong, and how to avoid the
common mistakes that could derail your risk assessment.
