Procurement fraud costs citizens more money than any other kind of corruption – billions of dollars a year worldwide. Advice about how to identify, prevent, and control such fraud is easy to find, but which measures really work? Moreover, procurement processes can be extremely complicated for participating vendors. How should governments balance the need for effective fraud detection with ensuring a process that is efficient and not overly burdensome for applicants? Join CAPI on October 20 as we explore these issues with experts in the field. Two free CLE credits
are available for non-transitional New York State attorneys for in person attendance.* Please register here.
When: Friday, October 20, 2017 from 9am-11am
Where: Columbia Law School, William & June Warren Hall, 1125 Amsterdam Avenue, Room L107
Since even before Inauguration Day, President Trump and others in his administration have been under scrutiny for serious conflicts of interest that could negatively impact the public good. Walter Shaub was on the front lines of this battle, attempting in his role as the director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics to hold the President and his appointees to the ethical standards that would ensure that our government officials are working in our interests instead of lining their own pockets.
Join CAPI as we host a discussion with Mr. Shaub in which he will describe his work, the importance of ethics in government, the arguable failure of the Trump administration to provide a clean and accountable Presidency, and what he and others are doing about it. One free Ethics and Professionalism CLE credit
is available for non-transitional New York State attorneys for in person attendance.* Please register here
When: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 from 12:10pm-1:10pm
Where: Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, 435 West 116th Street, Room 103
