Seeking Legal Subject Matter Experts on Advanced Conventional Weapons and International Law

CRDF Global is seeking a legal subject matter expert, or subject matter expert team, specializing in legal and/or financial procedures related to international and U.S. sanctions frameworks, due diligence screening, and compliance programs. In collaboration with other experts identified by CRDF Global, the subject matter expert(s) would develop online training materials and co-lead two virtual workshops in June 2021. These trainings will be focused on identifying and disrupting illicit networks, proxy groups and individuals which violate international sanctions by procuring and selling military goods such as advanced conventional weapons to sanctioned entities.

The legal subject matter expert will cover noncompliance consequences and secondary sanctions risks for financial institutions and businesses which facilitate these transactions. The legal subject matter expert(s) will also provide an overview of sanctions evasion typologies and provide recommendations for financial institutions and business entities to proactively screen against advanced conventional weapons proliferation linked transactions and commercial activity. This will strengthen and improve stakeholder compliance and due diligence programs in order to identify and disrupt the illicit networks that profit from the proliferation of advanced conventional weapons.

Q&A / Additional Information:

Q. Please provide more information on the "Self Recording Video for Online Trainings" Task

A. The recorded modules for trainings can range from 30 min to 2 hours and they are usually a place to offer introductory information for training participants to watch ahead of the live event. In the past, our experts simply used their computer webcams to pre-record this portion. The live event presentation/discussion will be 1 hour with Q&A included in that time, with content tailored to each audience.
