Jon Schofield

About Me

Jon is deeply experienced in the execution and management of global counter fraud investigations. Having spent decades in the public sector and additional years in the corporate world, he offers extensive employee and programme integrity experience and takes a multifaceted approach to risk reduction.

For 25 years, Jon conducted, supervised, and managed complex criminal, civil, and administrative investigations for Offices of Inspectors General (OIGs) in the United States.

The bulk of that period was spent addressing international contract, procurement, and employee fraud allegations with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Jon was posted in the Philippines for four years, and from 2012-2020, served as special agent in charge for all USAID OIG investigations in Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean, overseeing investigators, analysts, and supervisors in seven offices on three continents, plus Washington, DC.

Next, Jon served as director of the internal misconduct investigations office for a large U.S. bank. There, he was responsible for thousands of investigations, and accomplished numerous tasks such as leading the effort to create a new procedure manual, launching an outreach programme, and improving the team’s technical skills.

Jon joined OSACO as a senior investigator in early 2024, initially focusing on senior level misconduct allegations at public international organisations.

Jon has an undergraduate degree in Government and earned a Master's degree in International History. A Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist, he also completed numerous public and private academic endeavours on leadership, including the Senior Executive Fellows programme at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Key skills: Verbal and written communication and review; conducting employee integrity and fraud investigations; training investigators and non-investigators in basic and advanced investigation techniques and fraud awareness; conducting risk assessments; mentoring, leading teams, and supporting leadership.
