Integrity in the federal procurement and acquisition process is essential to ensuring fairness in the selection and awarding of contracts through competitive bids. Prior abuses of these processes led to the passage of the Procurement Integrity Act (PIA). The purpose of the PIA is to protect the federal agency procurement process by establishing a set of rules to maintain a level playing field for all bidders. This course is designed to provide employees of organizations that do business with the federal government with an overview of the regulatory framework that governs the competitive bidding process.

When you recognize performance problems early and diagnose them accurately, you can help turn them around and avoid serious consequences. Whether the problems lie in poor employee interactions, failure to comply with policies, or underperformance, managers need to know how to detect them in a timely manner. Performance problems can vary in scope, frequency, and magnitude. They can occur as single incidents or persistent patterns of behavior. Whatever their nature, you must intervene early, involve the employee, and uncover the true root causes in order to find the best possible solution. This course explains how you can remain alert to early warning signs of problems in your workplace. It enables you to determine the scope and urgency of problems when they occur. And it shows you how to diagnose root causes on your way to finding the best solution.

Eliminating waste is one of the most effective ways to increase the profitability of any organization. Processes either add value or waste to the production of a product or service. The seven wastes originated in Japan, where waste is known as muda. Seven types of waste were originally identified by Toyota's Chief Engineer Taiichi Ohno. Identifying and eliminating these wastes is one of the core principles of Lean Manufacturing. In order to eliminate waste, one must know what waste is, where it exists, and what causes it. There are practical and simple strategies for dealing with each type of waste, thereby reducing harmful effects on a company and improving overall performance and quality. This course will introduce the learner to some of the Lean tools used for identifying wastes and streamlining the value flow and how these can be used in organizations. The course will examine various aspects of muda, continuous flow, line balancing and the concept of value and non-value-add. Examples will be provided throughout the course reflecting these tools applied in both manufacturing and service environments.

Sparked by a wave of dramatic corporate and accounting scandals, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was signed into law on July 30, 2002. The law is intended to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures required by law, and to enforce compliance by making both corporations and individuals accountable for their actions via administrative, civil, and criminal enforcement mechanisms. Sarbanes Oxley provides the most forceful protections to date for corporate whistleblowers: it prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers, reinforces the act of whistleblowing, and requires public companies to adopt a code of business ethics and protocols for receiving and reviewing reports of fraudulent activities. While most employees' job duties do not include the implementation of the compliance requirements for corporate disclosures, they still need to know what constitutes fraudulent activity under Sarbanes Oxley so they can report any violations within their organizations, without fear of retaliation. In this course, you'll learn about the key provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and how it defines fraudulent activities. You'll also learn about the civil and criminal penalties for violating Sarbanes Oxley and about the protection that the Act provides to corporate whistleblowers.
