This webinar will discuss the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and its implication on the pay-to-procure (P2P) process. Participants will learn the 15 step compliance roadmap for the FCPA and FCPA compliance programs and how to test for FCPA violations in the P2P process. The Instructor will share guidelines to help your company establish FCPA compliance for your P2P process.

Why Should You Attend:

When it comes to managing and monitoring bribery malpractices, performing data analysis within the Procure to Pay (P2P) process can be one of the most powerful ways to validate the completeness and accuracy of books and records to add to your company’s FCPA toolkit.

Legislation, such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), implemented to fight bribery and corruption, prohibits any bribery payments to foreign officials and political figures. The FCPA applies to public US companies and the foreign companies listed on the US stock exchange. When language and cultural traditions vary so widely, a comprehensive approach including policy development, risk exposure assessment, control implementation, and ongoing transactional data monitoring is required. However, the failure to prevent and detect issues of bribery can lead to a serious offense resulting in heavy penalties, reputational damages, and possible incarceration.

Topic Background:

The biggest problem is the failure of U.S. business managers and in-house counsel to focus on what needs to be done and to dedicate the resources necessary to protect the company. From the government’s point of view, if a U.S. company is doing business outside the U.S., it is obligated do that business in compliance with the law. The DOJ and SEC have stated the required elements of a reasonable compliance program and expect every company to establish and run an adequate FCPA compliance program. This webinar will provide the guidelines to help your company establish a FCPA compliance not only for your P2P process – but a program that is transportable throughout your company.
