The Year of the False Claims Act? Why the FCA Will Loom Large in 2021

This event has already occurred. View Recording

The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently announced that it recovered only $2.2 billion under the False Claims Act (FCA) in fiscal year 2020 – the lowest of any year in the past decade. But with a new administration, the introduction of new laws, and trillions in new federal spending to support the economy – there is little doubt that 2021 will produce a significant increase in procurement fraud enforcement across the Nation.

How might this impact your company? Please join our experienced panelists – Bill Walter and Gary McDonald, leaders of DHG's GovCon Advisory Practice, and Jason Workmaster and Alex Sarria, leaders of Miller & Chevalier government contracts practice, as they discuss a confluence of factors that could make 2021 "The Year of the FCA":

  • 2020 laws create fertile ground for 2021 FCA enforcement
  • Increased federal spending leading to increased oversight
  • A new administration focused on FCA recoveries
  • New and more dynamic whistleblower threats
