For government contractors, the Procurement Integrity Act (PIA) sets specific rules regarding the government bid and proposal process, from what information they can access and use to what kinds of employment discussions they can have with government employees. It’s critical that employees have the knowledge to comply with these rules.

Part of NAVEX Global’s government contracting series, the Government Contracting: Procurement Integrity course aims to equip learners with a solid understanding of these rules established by the PIA and how to apply them. Coverage includes guidelines for handling bid and source selection information, as well as the rules around recruiting and hiring government employees.

The Procurement Integrity Act (PIA) was designed to help ensure that organizations and individuals who are competing for federal contracts are treated equally and are on a level playing field; this course was designed to help employees comply with its rules.
