New Form Helps Contractors Report Crimes

Monday, December 15, 2008

Comment | More

The General Services Administration’s Office of the Inspector General has launched an online form that contractors can use to submit evidence of possible criminal activities.

The office set up the Web site with a reporting form for contractors; the new Federal Acquisition Regulation rule that requires contractors to tell the government about such crimes took effect Dec. 12.

The office centralized receiving those reports, and an online form is available on the IG's Integrity Report Web site at http://oig.gsa.gov/integrityreport.htm.

When a contractor submits the electronic form, the GSA's system will reply automatically with an e-mail message that includes a tracking number and a copy of what was submitted so the contractor may forward it to an agency's contracting officer, according to the site.

“I encourage contractors to use our electronic form to submit reports required under the new FAR rule,” said Brian Miller, GSA’s IG.

The new FAR rule creates self-reporting and ethics program requirements for federal contractors and subcontractors.

Contractors may use this form to satisfy the requirement that they notify the agency in writing whenever they have credible evidence that a principal, employee, agent or subcontractor of the contractor has committed a violation of the civil False Claims Act or a violation of federal criminal law involving fraud, conflict of interest, bribery, or gratuity violations in connection with the award, performance, or closeout of a contract or any related subcontract.

The individual completing the form must be an authorized representative empowered to speak for the company.

Contractors who wish to provide information that does not fall within these guidelines may contact the Inspector General Hotline at http://oig.gsa.gov/hotline.htm.
