April 10, 2012 -- This week on Off the Shelf, Jason Workmaster, partner at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, and David Dowd, partner at Mayer Brown LLP, discuss the nexus between the civil False Claims Act and government contracts.

They will talk about the key contractual requirements relating to GSA schedules, that contractors must focus on to avoid potential liability under the civil False Claims Act.

Workmaster and Dowd will also discuss the importance of strong compliance programs, and when issues are raised, what contractors should know about the government's investigative processes.
