Organizational Conflict of Interest

Arbor Research diligently reviews current and potential funding opportunities for organizational conflicts of interest to ensure that we are able to render impartial advice to the government, that we are free from bias that may affect our professional judgment, and that we do not have an unfair competitive advantage in the process of contracting with the federal government. Our procedures are based upon and guided by principles and examples contained in Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 9.5 and associated regulations and guidance from the Government Accountability Office and federal courts.
