Course Overview:
The FCPA covers improper payments to foreign officials broadly defined as any and all government employees, officials or agents, and any person who works for a state owned business. The FCPA under its record keeping provisions also makes it illegal for companies to make payments of any kind not properly accounted for on the books.

Course Objective:
The FCPA has two provisions- Anti-Bribery and Accounting. The Anti-Bribery Provisions make it a crime for any US individual, business entity or employee of a US business entity to offer or provide, directly or through a 3rd party, anything of value to a foreign government official with corrupt intent to influence an award or continuation of business or to gain an unfair advantage.
