LEG 505 Strayer Code of Conduct Assessment

Assignment 1: Code of Conduct Assessment
Due Week 3 and worth 150 points

Refer to the following resources to complete this assignment:
Note: The assignments are a series of papers that build on one another.

The recent emphasis on ethics in government contracting requires contractors to avoid any conduct that even appears to be unethical. Imagine you are a former contracting officer (CO) turned contractor (you choose your area of expertise) and you just created one of the following companies: Strayer Dredging and Marine Re-nourishment, Inc., Strayer Janitorial Services, Inc., Strayer General Construction, or Strayer Snow Clearing, Inc. (you select the company).

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Provide an explanation of the specific goods and/or services the new contracting firm will provide.
  2. Evaluate the Lockheed Martin Code of Ethics as to whether it is effective in avoiding any conduct that even appears to be unethical in the type of organization you selected for your product.
  3. Determine the three most critical clauses in the Lockheed Martin document that aid the company in avoiding the appearance of impropriety.
  4. Determine two additional ethics provisions that you would include in your company’s Code of Conduct document based on Lockheed Martin’s code of conduct. Explain the rationale for the inclusion.
  5. Analyze how your recommended clause sufficiently closes the gap on one potential major ethical breach in the industry to which your product belongs. Note: Be sure to address any areas of concern regarding potential fraud in the contracting process.
  6. Use at least three quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as academic resources. For quality resources, visit the Strayer University Online Library at https://research.strayer.edu.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
