- June 14, 2013DocumentIn February 2013, just over a year after releasing a report by an independent advisory group on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations’ (FSGO) first 20 years, the Ethics Resource Center (ERC) called together government enforcement officials and members of the corporate compliance community for a policy Summit to consider ways to encourage corporate compliance through federal enforcement practices. With the advisory group’s recommendations as a point of departure, the Summit examined the FSGO’s role in government enforcement decisions, the relevance of corporate compliance and ethics (C/E) programs in those decisions, and how enforcement officers and corporate compliance officers could support each other in their efforts to deter misconduct. This report summarizes the Summit discussion around key issues and suggestions for next steps.
