What are the Pros and Cons of FAR Compliance?
FAR compliance is essential for those who do business with the United States government, as it helps to ensure ethical standards are met. Adherence to FAR requirements can protect both the contractor and the government from potential financial liabilities and criminal liability due to non-compliance.
The primary benefit of FAR compliance is its ability to promote fairness in the procurement process. By ensuring that all entities have equal access to government contracts, it helps to create a level playing field when competing for those contracts.
Additionally, FAR compliance requires contractors to adhere to the highest ethical standards, which provides an extra layer of protection against fraud and other unethical practices.
However, there are some potential drawbacks associated with FAR compliance. For instance, adhering to the requirements can be costly for contractors due to the need for additional resources and personnel. Additionally, there is a risk of criminal liability or suspension and debarment if a contractor does not comply with the terms of their contract or fails to follow proper procedures when dealing with government contracts.
