ACTING WITH PROFESSIONAL AND SOUND JUDGMENT
Comply with Government Contracting Requirements
Transactions involving government customers have additional legal and regulatory requirements, and we are committed to complying with the obligations these requirements create. When involved in the government contracting process — whether through bids, negotiation, administration, support or fulfillment — you must understand the special rules that apply.
How IT's Done ...
If you work on government contracts, keep these specific obligations in mind:
- Comply with any applicable security clearance requirements and obligations to protect classified or confidential information.
- Provide timely, accurate and complete information in connection with bids, reports, certifications, statements or any other information provided to the government.
- Submit only accurate information regarding pricing, and never make unauthorized or incorrect charges.
- Follow proper protocols, including obtaining customer approval, prior to making any substitutions or deviations from the original contract requirements and specifications.
- Adhere to all legal requirements regarding offering gifts, meals and entertainment and other courtesies to government representatives and other employees.
- Engage directly, honestly and truthfully in discussions with agency representatives and government employees.
The CDW Way
There are strict rules that apply when working on government contracts. Speak with your manager or the Legal Department if you have concerns about whether something complies with CDW policies.
Make the Connection
- Understand and comply with all applicable statutory, regulatory and contractual provisions and controls.
- Notify the Legal Department and CDW management if you receive inquiries about investigations or inspections, and assist as directed.
- Report any suspected illegal or unethical conduct on the part of a CDW coworker, contractor or business partner in connection with a government contract to the Ethics Helpline.
