Tom Caulfield has dedicated his professional career to public service and law enforcement beginning in 1977 in the United States Marine Corps, retiring in 1998. His career continued as a civil servant in the United States Air Force, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE). Caulfield ended his government service when he retired in 2015, as the Executive Director for the CIGIE Training Institute. During his 38 years of government service, his assignments included a full range of responsibilities at both the senior executive and program management levels in law enforcement, criminal investigations, anti-fraud strategies, white-collar crime investigations, polygraph, counter-intelligence, internal oversight and professional development and training.
He was a member of the Department of Justice National Procurement Fraud Task-Force and the architect to what became an amendment to the Federal Acquisition Regulation requiring mandatory disclosure by federal government contractors of certain violations of federal criminal law and the civil False Claims Act. He developed and managed the first Intelligence Community Procurement Integrity Assurance Program which focused on enhancing the integrity of classified procurements by preventing, deterring, and detecting procurement fraud and abuse. Caulfield has published and co-published several articles on subjects related to the anatomy of procurement fraud, procurement fraud schemes and the profile of the procurement fraudster. His material has been referenced in various federal reports and book publications related to procurement fraud and risk strategies.
Today, Caulfield is the co-owner along with his partner retired Inspector General Sheryl Steckler of Procurement Integrity Consulting Services, LLC; a company specializing in developing, assessing, and structuring strategies to assure contracting integrity. The company also assists clients in identifying and mitigating their inherent risk to procurement fraud and abuse. Caulfield and his partner co-designed the PICS Procurement Integrity Control System™, a proprietary model which helps organizations safeguard their reputation; reduce financial losses; and minimize opportunities for litigation related to procurement fraud and abuse. The company also provides customized training on the most prevalent procurement schemes of fraud and abuse in today’s contracting along with the most successful proactive and reactive protections against those same threats.
