The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires agents representing the interests of foreign powers in a political or quasi-political capacity to disclose their relationship, activities, and financial receipts. This transparency is intended to inform the U.S. government and the public of foreign influences on domestic policy and opinion. For procurement and supply chain professionals, understanding FARA is crucial to ensuring compliance when engaging with foreign entities and mitigating risks associated with foreign influence and potential conflicts of interest.
