The Prince William Chamber’s Business Academy Spring 2015 Term
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
SPOTLIGHT ON BUSINESS
According to the Of-
fice of Management
and Budget, one out
of every six dollars
spent by the Federal
government goes to
contractors. Govern-
ment procurement
offers business own-
ers the opportunity
to add tremendous
value to their busi-
nesses. However, adding that kind of value re-
quires significant effort. Navigating the tumultu-
ous waters of government contracting can be a
daunting task. To be successful, contractors must
have a sound working knowledge of the govern-
ment contracting rules and regulations that they
must comply with.
Woodbridge, VA, based law firm, Fluet Huber
+ Hoang, is a leader in advising and training cli-
ents on government contract compliance. FH+H
has released a 100 page Brown Paper, "The Big
Book of Government Contractor Compliance."
The "Big Book" collects and summarizes all of
the major compliance regulations and statutes ap-
plicable to Government Contractors and outlines
industry practices. There are thousands of laws,
regulations, restrictions and statues that are used
to govern Government Contractors, and penalties
for wrongdoing, or even for negligent non-compli-
ance, can include fines and imprisonment, as well
as debarment from obtaining Federal contracts for
up to three years. Our hope in creating this book
is for you to have a place you can turn to for quick
and reliable guidance to help you understand the
basic rules and identify areas of potential risk.
For every area of compliance, the Big Book
outlines who the laws and regulations apply to;
a summary of the compliance requirements, key
statutes and regulations, enforcement agencies,
potential penalties; and industry best practices.
Designed as a valuable reference for every Gov-
ernment Contractor, the "Big Book" is available
as a downloadable publication to all FH+H cli-
ents and contacts via their website - http://www.
fluetlaw.com/publications
