Prepare and Prevent, Don’t Repair and Repent…

Because “red flags” and risk are a normal part of construction, hiring/engaging someone who has “been there, done that” is a smart business strategy.

We specialize in proactive, preventative corporate ethics and compliance program design and implementation. We can perform assessments and find solutions that meet the needs of your business. Our services include legal and regulatory compliance assessments and gap analysis, integrity monitoring, auditing and assurance reviews, education and training, design and implementation of “best practice” regulatory policy and procedures and investigations.

What we can do for you:

Risk Assessment and Advisory Services

Let us review your code of conduct, standards policies and procedures and align your policy and process with current regulations and update them when those regulations change.

Let us advise you on industry “best practices”.

Let us conduct your risk assessment and identify gaps and prioritize your risks.

Education and Training

Let us educate and enhance employee awareness of the risky regulations particular to your business (M/WBE, DBE, Prevailing Wages, Davis-Bacon, Conflicts of Interest, Buy America and more) and train them to identify those red flags thereby mitigating the risk of a compliance failure.

Let us develop and conduct training for your employees on compliance-related subjects and company procedures related to those risky areas.

Assurance Reviews

Let us periodically audit and monitor your compliance with regulations to give you peace of mind that you are doing all you can and that the standards, policies and procedures you have in place are working to protect you and your company.

And where gaps are detected, let us recommend and oversee the implementation of appropriate corrective action.

DBE, MWBE and other Socio-Economic Program Development

Let us, experienced and proven experts in this area with a track record of success, analyze and review your company’s policy and develop a procedure that will minimize your risk in this area.

Let us train your staff on the regulations.

Let us develop a “best practice” for you.

Let us tell you if you are “doing it right” by reviewing your participation plans and seeing if they are in conformance with the appropriate regulation and contract requirements.

Assistance with Reporting to and Training of the Board of Directors and C-Level Executives

Let us help you create a corporate culture that “means it.” Most companies have now realized the benefit of having a compliance program and have designed them to conform to the legal mandates of the FSGO. What businesses continue to struggle with is how to integrate the compliance function into the business strategies and processes to go beyond a “check the box” mentality. At businesses that have been successful, the culture supports ethical decision making without compromise. The culture message begins with your board of directors.

Contract and Project Compliance Monitoring and Reporting

Let us audit and monitor company compliance with Federal, State and Local laws, rules and regulations, including, but not limited to M/WBE, DBE and other social policy goals, wage and hour laws, diversity and workforce goals, immigration laws, pre-qualification and other responsibility questionnaires.

Let us guide you through your interactions with the regulators and provide independent assurance that your reports are compliant.

Business Ethics Code of Conduct and Policy Development

Let us create, develop, revise, update, review your ethics and compliance program to ensure that the company is exercising due diligence to operate with integrity and prevent and detect improper conduct.

Investigations and Fraud and Corruption Detection

Let us investigate and work with you to resolve any situation where your company’s ethics or compliance policies may be compromised.

Integrity Monitoring

Let us act as your outside, independent monitor to assure those you do (or want to do) business with that you are acting with integrity and that your business practices, process and procedures will serve to prevent and detect fraud and compliance failures.

Let us know what we can do for you.
