Federal, state and local governments have been cracking down on disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) fraud. This live webinar will help companies who do business with DBE's understand the requirement that a DBE perform a commercially useful function and how to identify fraudulent DBE relationships. It will also address how companies can lessen the risk of becoming the subject or target of a DBE fraud investigation and offer practical advice on how companies can do business with DBEs while complying with the law. This webinar is critical for companies who are participating in DBE contracts in this heightened enforcement environment.
