What are Examples of Bribery in Government Contracting
Some government employees who are influential or decisionmakers in the award of government contracts can be charged or indicted for for engaging in a bribery and procurement fraud scheme. This includes contracting officers, end-users and procurement heads.
Examples of actions in a bribery case can include receiving bribe payments in exchange for providing preferential treatment to a contracting firm. When a public official accepts bribes during the government contracting process, they can be exposed to investigation, indictment or possible conviction with jail time.
When it comes to bribery and government contracts, several types of behavior can constitute a violation of law, including offering or accepting money or other items of value, influencing an election or contract award for personal gain, using inside information to influence competitive bidding processes, or giving false information on documents related to contracts. Because of the complexity of these situations, it’s important to work with an experienced defense attorney who can advise you on your options and help you reach your desired outcome.
