FAR Code of Conduct

This FAR Code of Conduct course is highly recommended for federal contractors and subcontractors. It provides essential training on the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) rules that require certain government contractors and subcontractors to (1) adopt and promote a Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, and (2) implement internal controls to encourage the reporting of misconduct.

Geography Covered: Americas | Duration: 40 minutes

Summary

In 2007 the U.S. Department of Defense, the General Services Administration and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration developed a set of rules for federal contractors and subcontractors to (1) adopt and promote a Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, and (2) implement internal controls to encourage the reporting of misconduct through awareness training, among other things.

These rules are part of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and serve as a guide for all federal contractors and subcontractors. They are mandatory when (1) the value of the contract is expected to exceed $5,000,000, and (2) the performance period is 120 days or more. Fraud awareness training will help to maintain a culture of compliance and to avoid fines and reputational damage.
