Contractors in the Federal Workplace: Challenges and Best Practices
Contractors are an integral part of the federal workforce. Many government requirements could not be performed without contractor support. This 1-day class is designed to assist employees working with contractors within the federal workplace. In many cases, contractor personnel must interact on a daily basis and exchange knowledge with government employees to perform their tasks effectively. Students will learn key differences between the treatment of government and contractor personnel, how to deal with ethical challenges, and how to implement best practices. We may operate as a team with our contractors, but we are in different lanes. Most ethics laws & regulations are inapplicable to contractors. This class is designed for non-acquisitions personnel who may be working in or managing a blended workforce. Contact us today for a quote! This 1-day class focuses on the ethics challenges specific to the acquisition environment, including interaction with contractors prior to award of a contract, protection of source selection sensitive information, and ensuring productive yet ethical working interactions between employees of the Federal Government and contractors. This class is designed for acquisition and purchasing personnel and CORs. Contact us today for a quote!
