Caulfield has more than forty years of combined experience in the private sector, federal government, and military, where he has identified fraudsters, produced effective contracting integrity controls, built anti-corruption and anti-fraud mitigation programs, performed fraud risk assessments, conducted investigations, and built procurement fraud prevention and detection initiatives. He has extensive experience developing and delivering customized training on today’s most prevalent corruption, fraud, and abuse schemes in the contracting field, and he has provided training on proactive protections against those threats. Additionally, Caulfield advises both public and private entities on developing data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning approaches related to corruption and fraud prevention and detection.

    Caulfield is the co-designer of the PICS Procurement Integrity Control System®, a proprietary internal control model designed to mitigate the inherent risk to procurement fraud and abuse, thus safeguarding organizational reputation, reducing financial losses, minimizing opportunities for contract termination or litigation, and achieving competitive advantage.

He also worked 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).  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.
